# How do you find the coordinates of the center, foci, the length of the major and minor axis given #x^2/25+y^2/9=1#?

##### 1 Answer

Please see the explanation

#### Explanation:

The standard form for an ellipse is:

The centerpoint is:

The vertices are at:

If

The length of the major axis is

The length of the minor axis is

If

The length of the major axis is

The length of the minor axis is

Convert the given equation to standard form:

The centerpoint is:

The vertices are at:

The length of the major axis is

The length of the minor axis is
