# How do I graph the ellipse with the equation #(x−5)^2/9+(y+1)^2/16=1#?

##### 1 Answer

From the equation, by inspection, Center

#### Explanation:

This is an Ellipse with Vertical Major Axis

with the equation form

so that

and

so we can calculate, Vertices using the values of

Vertex

Vertex

Co-vertex

Co-vertex

We don't use the Foci to graph the ellipse so there's no need to compute for them

Kindly see the graph of

graph{(x-5)^2/9+(y+1)^2/16=1[-12,12,-6,6]}
