Find the coordinates of the foci, the vertices, the length of major axis, the minor axis, the eccentricity and the length of the latus rectum of the ellipse

Solution: The given equation is  or
Here, the denominator of  is greater than the denominator of
Therefore the major axis is along the -axis while the minor axis is along the -axis.
On comparing the given equation with  we obtain and

The coordinates of the foci are
The coordinates of the vertices are
Length of major axis
Length of minor axis
Eccentricity
