1 The Ellipse

An ellipse is the set of points in the plane the sum of whose distances from

two fixed points F1 and F2 remain constant. These two fixed points are the

foci (plural of focus) of the ellipse.

The graph of the equation of each of the following equations is an ellipse with center at the origin and

having the given properties.
