Problem 32

In an ellipse, the ratio _c a is called the eccentricity and is denoted by the letter e. Eccentricity measures the elongation of an ellipse. The closer e is to 0, the more an ellipse looks like a circle. Pluto has the most eccentric orbit in our solar system with e 0.25. Find an equation to model the orbit of Pluto, given that the length of the major axis is about 7.34 billion miles. Assume that the major axis is horizontal and that the center of the orbit is the origin
