Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

So the equation 

%28x-h%29%5E2%2Fb%5E2+%2B+%28y-k%29%5E2%2Fa%5E2+=+1

becomes

%28x-7%29%5E2%2F2%5E2+%2B+%28y-6%29%5E2%2F3%5E2+=+1

or

%28x-7%29%5E2%2F4+%2B+%28y-6%29%5E2%2F9+=+1


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
