Answer :

It is given that b = 3, c=4, centre at the origin; foci on the x axis.


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, b = 3 and c=4.


It is known that a2 = b2+c2.


a2 = 32+42 = 9+16 =25


a =5


Thus, the equation of the ellipse is or = 1.
