How do you find the vertices?
Steps to Solve
- Get the equation in the form y = ax2 + bx + c.
- Calculate -b / 2a. This is the x-coordinate of the vertex.
- To find the y-coordinate of the vertex, simply plug the value of -b / 2a into the equation for x and solve for y. This is the y-coordinate of the vertex.

How do you find the equation of an ellipse?
The standard equation of an ellipse is (x^2/a^2)+(y^2/b^2)=1. If a=b, then we have (x^2/a^2)+(y^2/a^2)=1. Multiply both sides of the equation by a^2 to get x^2+y^2=a^2, which is the standard equation for a circle with a radius of a.
