Equation of Ellipse in Standard Form

I have to write the equation in standard form of the ellipse with foci (8,0) and (-8,0) if the minor axis has y-intercepts of 2 and -2.

I know that the standard form of the equation if x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 =1.

This is a horizontal elipse with center (0,0). The length of the minor axis is 4 units so I think c = 4 and c^2 = 16. I don't know where to go to find a^2 and b^2.

Can you help? Thanks.
