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

This simplifies to:

The center of the ellipse is shifted to the left 5 in the x-direction, and up 3 (in the y-direction). So the center is (-5,3).

The major axis is given by twice the square root of the largest denominator, in this case 2*sqrt(16) = 8

The minor axis is given by twice the square root of the smallest denominator, in this case 2*sqrt(2) or sqrt(8)

And the distance from center to focus is given by the sqrt(4^2 - sqrt(2)^2) = sqrt(14). Final answer:


(-5,3),8,sqrt(8),sqrt(14)

Please let me know if you need any clarification!! Always glad to help!
