13. Find the equation for the ellipse that satisfies the given conditions:
Ends of major axis (± 3, 0), ends of minor axis (0, ± 2)
Given, In an ellipse,
Ends of the major axis (± 3, 0), ends of minor axis (0, ± 2)
Here, the major axis of this ellipse will be X-axis.
Therefore, the equation of the ellipse will be of the form:
Where and are the length of the semimajor axis and semiminor axis respectively.
So on comparing standard parameters( ends of the major and minor axis ) with the given one, we get
Hence, The Equation of the ellipse will be :
