Question

Find the equation for the ellipse that satisfies the given conditions,
Foci (±3,0)a=4
 


Solution

The foci (±3,0) lie on x - axis.
So the equation of ellipse in standard form is,
x2a2+y2b2=1
 Now foci(±c,0)is (±3,0)c=3We know that c2=a2b2(3)2=(4)2b2b2=169=7
 Thus equation of required ellipse is, 
x216+y27=1.
