Step-by-step explanation: The y-intercept of a line is the point where the graph crosses or intersects the y-axis.
In this case, the line crosses the y-axis 2 units down from the
origin and we can write the coordinates of the point as (0, -2).
So the answer is -2.
An ellipse with vertices (-8, 0) and (8, 0)
Distance between two vertices = 2a
Distance between (-8,0) and (8,0) = 16
so a= 8
Vertex is (h+a,k)
we know a=8, so vertex is (h+8,k)
Now compare (h+8,k) with vertex (8,0) and find out h and k
h+8 =8, h=0
a minor axis of length 10.
Length of minor axis = 2b
2b = 10
so b = 5
General formula for the equation of horizontal ellipse is
a= 8 , b=5 , h=0,k=0. equation becomes
