Since denominator of x2 is larger than the donominator of y2, the major axis is along the x-axis. Comparing the given equation with = 1.
We get a = 6 and b = 4
Also = =
Therefore, the coordinates of foci, (-c, 0) and (c, 0) are and , Vertices, (-a, 0) and (-6, 0) and (6, 0). Length of the major axis, 2a is 12 units.
The length of the mirror axis, 2b is 8 units and eccentricity, e = is = .
The length of latus rectum = = units.
