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 . . .
