Note that the vertices, co-vertices, and foci are related by the equation
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{c}^{2}={a}^{2}-{b}^{2}.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ When we are given the coordinates of the foci and vertices of an ellipse, we can use this relationship to find the equation of the ellipse in standard form.
Given the vertices and foci of an ellipse centered at the origin, write its equation in standard form.
Determine whether the major axis lies on the
x - or
y -axis.
If the given coordinates of the vertices and foci have the form
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\pm a,0\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}(\pm c,0)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ respectively, then the major axis is the
x -axis. Use the standard form
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{{x}^{2}}{{a}^{2}}+\frac{{y}^{2}}{{b}^{2}}=1.$
If the given coordinates of the vertices and foci have the form
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\mathrm{0,}\pm a\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}(\pm c,0),$ respectively, then the major axis is the
y -axis. Use the standard form
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{{x}^{2}}{{b}^{2}}+\frac{{y}^{2}}{{a}^{2}}=1.$
Use the equation
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{c}^{2}={a}^{2}-{b}^{2},\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ along with the given coordinates of the vertices and foci, to solve for
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{b}^{2}.$
Substitute the values for
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{a}^{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{b}^{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ into the standard form of the equation determined in Step 1.
Writing the equation of an ellipse centered at the origin in standard form
What is the standard form equation of the ellipse that has vertices
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\pm 8,0\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and foci
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\pm 5,0\right)?\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$
The foci are on the
x -axis, so the major axis is the
x -axis. Thus, the equation will have the form
The vertices are
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\pm 8,0\right),$ so
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}a=8\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{a}^{2}=64.$
The foci are
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\pm 5,0\right),$ so
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}c=5\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{c}^{2}=25.$
We know that the vertices and foci are related by the equation
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{c}^{2}={a}^{2}-{b}^{2}.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ Solving for
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{b}^{2},$ we have:
Now we need only substitute
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{a}^{2}=64\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{b}^{2}=39\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ into the standard form of the equation. The equation of the ellipse is
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\frac{{x}^{2}}{64}+\frac{{y}^{2}}{39}=1.$
What is the standard form equation of the ellipse that has vertices
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\mathrm{0,}\pm 4\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and foci
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\mathrm{0,}\pm \sqrt{15}\right)?$
Can we write the equation of an ellipse centered at the origin given coordinates of just one focus and vertex?
Yes. Ellipses are symmetrical, so the coordinates of the vertices of an ellipse centered around the origin will always have the form
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\pm a,0\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ or
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}(0,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\pm a).\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ Similarly, the coordinates of the foci will always have the form
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(\pm c,0\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ or
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}(0,\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\pm c).\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ Knowing this, we can use
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}a\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}c\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ from the given points, along with the equation
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{c}^{2}={a}^{2}-{b}^{2},$ to find
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{b}^{2}.$
Writing equations of ellipses not centered at the origin
Like the graphs of other equations, the graph of an
ellipse can be translated. If an ellipse is translated
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}h\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ units horizontally and
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}k\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ units vertically, the center of the ellipse will be
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(h,k\right).\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ This
translation results in the standard form of the equation we saw previously, with
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ replaced by
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(x-h\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and
y replaced by
$\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(y-k\right).$
I think the formula for calculating algebraic is the statement of the equality of two expression stimulate by a set of addition, multiplication, soustraction, division, raising to a power and extraction of Root. U believe by having those in the equation you will be in measure to calculate it
the Cayley hamilton Theorem state if A is a square matrix and if f(x) is its characterics polynomial then f(x)=0 in another ways evey square matrix is a root of its chatacteristics polynomial.
