Here is the sketch of this ellipse. [Return to Problems] (c) Now with this ellipse we’re going to have to be a little careful as it isn’t quite in standard form
yet. Here is the standard form for this ellipse. ( x + 1) 2 1

2 http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/terms.aspx College Algebra Note that in order to get the coefficient of 4 in the numerator of the first term we will need to
have a 1
in the denominator. Also, note that we don’t even have a fraction for the y term. This
4 implies that there is in fact a 1 in the denominator. We could put this in if it would be helpful to
see what is going on here. ( x + 1) 2 1
4 ( y + 3)
+ 2 =1 1 So, in this form we can see that the center is ( -1, -3) and that a = 1
and b = 1 . The points for
