 Question 451902: Find equation for the ellipse that shares a vertex and focus with the parabola x^2 + y = 100 and has its other focus at the origin? I know what the shape of the two figures together would look like, and i found that 2C is 100, since that is the distance between foci. From that I determined that 2b - c = 100. What I don't get is how to find a and b. Thanks very much! Click here to see answer by robertb(4012)

 Question 451966: Write the equation of the conic with the following characteristics. Vertices (1,2)(9,2) Co-vertices (5,1)(5,3) How would I approach this question? I know you must find where the ellipse is centered at. You also must find A & B. A^2 = 4 and B^2 = 25 I'm assuming. Since it gives you the vertices which means that +or- 2 is equal to A, and the co vertices have +or- 5 meaning B is equal to 5. But then how do I find where the ellipse is centered at? Unless of course..you can't. Click here to see answer by lwsshak3(6755)

 Question 454107: Hi, I am studying for a quiz on hyperbolas and one of the problems I am doing is this: Write an equation in standard form for each hyperbola. Length of transverse axis 10 and foci at (-7,18) and (-7,-8) So far, I understand that it is vertical therefore the equation would be in the (y-k)^2/a^2-(x-h)^2/b^2=1 I am pretty sure I also got the center which was (-7, 5) So now I have (y-5)^2/a^2-(x+7)^2/b^2=1 My problem is is that I don't know how to find what a and b are. I understand they come from the vertices and co-vertices but I don't think I fully understand the transverse axis. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57960)
