**Ex 11.3 Class 11 Maths Question 1.**

x^{2}/36 + y

^{2}/16 = 1

**Ex 11.3 Class 11 Maths Question 2.**

x^{2}/4 + y

^{2}/25 = 1

**Solution:**

The given equation of ellipse is: x^{2}/4 + y^{2}/25 = 1

The equation of ellipse in standard form is:

**Ex 11.3 Class 11 Maths Question 3.**

x^{2}/16 + y

^{2}/9 = 1

**Solution:**

The given equation of ellipse is: x^{2}/16 + y^{2}/9 = 1

Clearly, 16 > 9

Here, a^{2} =
16 ⇒ a = 4 and b^{2} = 9 ⇒ b = 3.

Major axis is along x-axis.

Also, c^{2} = a^{2} – b^{2} = 16 – 9 =
7 ⇒ c = √7

Coordinates of foci (±c, 0), i.e., (±√7, 0).

Vertices are (±a, 0), i.e., (±4, 0).

Length of major axis = 2a = 2 × 4 = 8.

Length of minor axis = 2b = 2 × 3 = 6.

∴ Eccentricity e = c/a = √7/4

Also, Latus rectum = 2b^{2}/a = (2×9)/4 = 9/2.

**Ex 11.3 Class 11 Maths Question 4.**

x^{2}/25 + y

^{2}/100 = 1

**Solution:**

The given equation of ellipse is: x^{2}/25 + y^{2}/100 = 1

Clearly, 100 > 25

The equation of ellipse in standard form is:

**Ex 11.3 Class 11 Maths Question 5.**

x^{2}/49 + y

^{2}/36 = 1

**Solution:**

The given equation of ellipse is: x^{2}/49 + y^{2}/36 = 1

Clearly, 49 > 36

The equation of ellipse in standard form is:

**Ex 11.3 Class 11 Maths Question 6.**

x^{2}/100 + y

^{2}/400 = 1

**Solution:**

The given equation of ellipse is: x^{2}/100 + y^{2}/400 = 1

Clearly, 400 > 100

Question 9.**

4x^{2}+ 9y

^{2}= 36

**Solution:**

The given equation of ellipse is: 4x^{2} + 9y^{2} =
