Hello, IAmLegendToo!

Find an equation of an ellipse satisfying the given conditions.

Foci: (-1,6) and (-1,0); Length of major axis: 10

Need more of a check on my answer.

The center is obviously the midpoint between the 2 Foci, so it's (-1,3) and it's vertical.

So it's equation is: .

is half the length of the major axis (10) so: . . all correct!

C is x in the foci, so it's 1 . . . . no

is the distance from the center to a focus: .

Give it another try . . .
