so on this question i have tried completing the square to find the translation but it doesnt seem to work, please tell me if my method is correct or not and how to do it the right way. thanks

I'll give this a shot

 

We can transform the given equation  into

 

9x^2  + 4y^2   = 36

 

This is an ellipse centered at the origin

 

We have

 

9x^2  - 18x + 4y^2 + 16y  =  c    ..... [ complete the square on x , y]

 

9 ( x^2 - 2x + 1)  + 4 ( y^2 + 4y + 4)  = c + 9 + 16

 

9 ( x - 1)^2  +  4 (y + 2)^2  =   [ c + 9 + 16 ]     divide both sides by 36

 

(x - 1)^2 /  4   +  (y + 2)^2 / 9  =  [ c + 9 + 16] / 36

 

Since we want the right side to be  1,  c  must  = 11

 

So  we have the equation

 

(x - 1)^2 / 4  +  (y + 2)^2 / 9   =  1

 

So....the translation of the original graph  is  1 unit to the right and  2 units down  =   vector ( 1 , -2 )

 

So...a =  1 , b = -2   and  c  = 11

 

 

cool cool cool
