I have to put the ellipse with the equation into standard form,
I have attached my work as a picture since it would take a long time to type in (I did it on Microsoft Office). Could anyone tell me if I am correct, and if not, where did I go wrong? Thanks!
Does this error make the entire thing wrong? Even though I factored wrong, I don't think this affects the rest of the problem because I added the correct amount to the other side, and I do not expand the binomials after I factored them.
I am doing this to program my calculator to put it into standard form and give all of the information. I have a program to do it in standard form, but I wanted it to work for general form, too. This way, for example, the x coorodinate of the vertex is . This would work for the y coorodinate, term and . I already did this for the parabola and circle, but I was unsure of this one. Thanks for your help!
