Another one i'm having problems with is
x^2 + 4y^2 = 1
I get the general idea of finding the Verticies, Foci, Eccentricity, Major Axes, and the Minon Axes.
However i'm having trouble doing it with this problem
2x^2 + y^2 = 3
Can someone point me in the right direction? I know I need to get it to equal 1 so I divide the entire equation by 3. This in turn will give me
(2/3)x^2 + (y^2)/ 3 = 1
Well looking at the numbers, x has a greater value than y since it is 2/3. So the verticies should be (+-Sqrt(2/3),0) but when I check the back of the book, it's not giving me that answer. It gives me (0,+-sqrt(3))
Help
