Ellipses and Standard Equations Worksheets
What Are the Foci & Vertices of an Ellipse? You do not have to worry every time you see a word or equation in math that you have never seen before because we are here to make things easier for you! Do you know what an ellipse is and what are its foci and vertices? Let us delve in! Let us start with what an ellipse is. When a set of all points (x, y) is placed on a plane such that the sum of their distances from two fixed points is constant, the set of points is referred to as an ellipse. Ellipses are of two main kinds: horizontal major axis ellipse and vertical major axis ellipse. Now, every fixed point in the plane is known as the focus of the ellipse. The plural of focus is foci. Remember that all ellipses have two axes of symmetry. The shorter axis is known as the minor axis, while the longer axis is known as the major axis. The endpoint of the major axis is known as the vertex of the ellipse. The plural for vertex is vertices. While the endpoint for every minor axis is known as covertex of the ellipse.
