# Ellipse in standard form

## Homework Statement

Graph the following:
$$15(x+2)^2 + \frac{(y+3)^2}{4} = 4$$

## Homework Equations

$$\frac{(x-h)^2}{a^2}+\frac{(y-k)^2}{b^2}=1$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

I can't seem to get both coefficients to 1, since the right side is only 4. If I multiply the whole thing by 4, I can get rid of the denominator on the y term, but then the coefficient of the x jumps to 60, and 60 won't reduce the coefficient to 1. So I'm stuck. Can anyone help? This is not homework, just a practice question that's bugging me...
