Answer :

Foci = (), a=4


Since the foci are on the x-axis, the major axis is along the x-axis.


Therefore, the equation of the ellipse will be of the form =1, where a is the semi-major axis.


Accordingly, c = 3 and a=4.


It is known that a2 = b2+c2.


a2 = 82+62 = 64+36 =100


16 = b2 + 9


b2 = 16 – 9 = 7


Thus, the equation of the ellipse is = 1.
