open parenthesis y 6 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 4 equals 1 open parenthesis x 5 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 9 open parenthesis y 6 close parenthesis to the 2 power equals 4 open square bracket 1 open parenthesis x 5 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 9 close square bracket y equals 6 plus or minus 2 the square root of 1 open parenthesis x 5 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 9 end radicand Is it necessary to break up the curve into two halves in order to graph the ellipse? Why or why not? EXAMPLE 2 Graph open parenthesis x 5 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 9 plus open parenthesis y 6 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 4 equals 1. Solution The center of the ellipse is (5, 6), a = 3, and b = 2. Therefore, we begin at (5, 6). We plot points 3 units to the left, 3 units to the right, 2 units up, and 2 units down from (5, 6). The points we plot are the vertices of the ellipse. Student Practice 2 Graph open parenthesis x 2 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 16 plus open parenthesis y plus 3 close parenthesis to the 2 power over 9 equals 1.
