find the eq

Answer :

Given that we need to find the equation of the ellipse whose eccentricity is and the semi - major axis is 4.


Let us assume the equation of the ellipse as (a2>b2).



We know that eccentricity(e) =






We know that the length of the semi - major axis is a


a = 4


a2 = 16



b2 = 12


The equation of the ellipse is




3x2 + 4y2 = 48


The equation of the ellipse is 3x2 + 4y2 = 48.
