Step 1 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseMajor axis is parallel to the y-axis. Thus, the ellipse is vertical ellipse (x-h)' , (y-k)² The equation of the vertical ellipse is given by fullscreen
Step 2 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseCenter of the ellipse is (h,k) =(1,5). The length of the major axis is 2a and the length of the minor axis is 2b Given that the length of the major axis is 22 units. Thus, a = 11. The length of the minor axis is 14 units. Thus, b = 7. fullscreen
