# Find the equation for the ellipse that satisfies the given conditions: Vertices (± 3, 0), Foci (0, ± 2)

**Solution:**

Vertices (± 3, 0), Foci (0, ± 2)

Here, the vertices are on the x-axis.

Therefore,

the equation of the ellipse will be of the form x^{2}/a^{2} + y^{2}/b^{2} = 1

where a is the semi-major axis

Then,

a = 3 and b = 2

Thus,

the equation of the ellipse is x^{2}/3^{2} + y^{2}/2^{2} = 1 or x^{2}/9 + y^{2}/4 = 1
