How to find the center, foci and vertices of an ellipse

Learn how to graph vertical ellipse which equation is in general form. A vertical ellipse is an ellipse which major axis is vertical. When the equation of an ellipse is written in the general form, we first rewrite it in standard form using completing the square.

After the equation has been rewritten in the standard form, we then graph the vertical ellipse, by first identifing some of the properties of the ellipse including the major radius and the minor radius and the center. These properties enables us to graph the ellipse.
