Homework Statement


Graph the ellipse 4x² + 2y² = 1

Homework Equations


4x² + 2y² = 1

The Attempt at a Solution


2x² + y²/2 = 1/2
I searched for exercises on Google, and i didn't find an equation like that. I watched videoleassons too but it didn't teach this type of equation.

Try some values of x... what values for y work for your xs?
(You can try to solve for y as a function of x, then plug in choices of x.)
