Here center is (h, k) and above equations is the basic part of the conic section ellipse.

Conic section ellipse can be clearly understood by the following examples:-

(25 x^2) + (16 y^2) = 400 (divide the equation by 400)

(25 x^2)/400 + (16 y^2)/400 = 400/400 (When we rearrange the equation)

X^2 / (400/25) + y^2 / (400/16) = 1 (Now according to the ellipse equation)

X^2/ a^2 + y^2 / b^2 = 1 (plugging in the values)

2^2/ 6^2 + y^2 / 7^2 = 1

4/36 + y^2 / 49 = 1

y^2 / 49 = 1 – 4/36

y^2 = (32 / 36) x 49
