Hello, ccdalamp!
The center of the ellipse is the origin:Find the vertices of the ellipse: .
Choices: .
The denominator of the -fraction is: .
The denominator of the -fraction is: .
Since the larger denominator is "under the ", the major axis is vertical.
. . The vertices are always the ends of the major axis.
Hence, the vertices are 5 units above and below the center: .
