Give an equation for the elliptic cylinder whose central axis is the line through 1,2,3, parallel to the y-axis. The cross sections perpendicular to the central axis should be ellipses with a vertical semi-major axis of length 3 and a horizontal semi-minor axis of length 1. Graph this cylinder for y1,5.
