Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have this homework question and I completed and found the the foci and the center for the ellipse, but I dont understand how to find the semi major and minor axis.

Graph and give the center, semi major and semi minor axis and foci of the ellipse

25x^2 + 350x + 9y^2 - 54y +1081 = 0

For the center and Foci I got:

Center: [7, 3]

Foci: [11, 3] & [3, 3]

If anyone can help me with this, that'd be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
