From Example Problems

Find the eccentricity,coordinates of focus,length of latus rectum and equations of directrices of the ellipse

The given equation can be written as

Dividing the equation by 8, we have

Comparing with the form we get

Length of major axis and minor axis are

eccentricity is

Focii are

Length of the latus rectum is

Equations of directrices are
