Ex 11.3, 14 Find the equation for the ellipse that satisfies the given conditions: Ends of major axis (0, ± 5) , ends of minor axis (±1, 0) Given end of major axis (0, ± 5), & ends of minor axis (±1, 0) Major axis is along the y-axis So our required equation of ellipse is 𝑥2𝑏2 + 𝑦2𝑎2 = 1 We know that End of major axis is the vertices of the ellipse So vertices of ellipse = (0, ± 3) Also, Vertices of the ellipse is (0, ± a) Comparing (0, ± a) = (0, ± 3) a = 𝟑 We know that End of minor axis = (± b, 0) So, (±1, 0) = (± b, 0) So, b = 1 Required equation of ellipse is 𝑥2𝑏2 + 𝑦2𝑎2 = 1 Putting values 𝑥212 + 𝑦252 = 1 𝒙𝟐𝟏 + 𝒚𝟐𝟓 = 1
