An ellipse is defined by the equation [tex] \frac {x^2}{144} + \frac {y^2}{36} = 1[/tex]. Determine the equation of the ellipse formed when the original ellipse has undergone a horizontal compression by a factor of 1/2 and a vertical expansion by a factor of 3.
I'm not quite sure how to work out the equation.. could someone give me some hints?
