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

Asked by Sakshi | 1 year ago |  58

Solution :-

Given:

Foci (±3, 0) and a = 4

Since the foci are on the x-axis, the major axis is along the x-axis.

Then, c = 3 and a = 4.

It is known that a2 = b+ c2.

a2 = 8+ 62

= 64 + 36

= 100

16 = b2 + 9

b2 = 16 – 9

= 7

The equation of the ellipse is $$\dfrac{x^2}{16 }+ \dfrac{y^2}{7} = 1$$
