Which branch of government has ultimate control?

No branch of government has ultimate control. Thankfully we have something called separation of powers (checks and balances). Example Congress legislative branch make laws. the president executive branch enforces them. the courts the judicial branch decides whether the law are constitutional. They interpret the law. Sadly over the years congress and given powers and extended the powers to the president.

What check on power does the president have on congress?

The President, or the "Executive Branch", as its called, proposes laws - which Congress (the "Legislative Branch") then can either act on or ignore. Its the Supreme Court (the "Judicial Branch") that acts to 'check' the powers of Congress, by the ability to overturn laws that are unconstitutional. The President nominates Supreme Court justices, who then have to be approved by the Senate, so its a big circular power exchange.... The Executive Branch has a number of ways to control the powers of Congress. There is the Presidential veto. There is the appointment of judges and other Federal officers.

How did the executive legastive and judicial governments worked together?

Checks and balances is important to check the constution and make sure that the president makes the right law. When the president makes a law people can check whether it fits the constution and if it is helpful to the citizen. When there is no judicial branch no one can check the constution. When there is no executive branch, there is no approval on the law made by the president. When there is no legeslative branch, there is no one to make the law because there is no president. When there is no judicial branch or executive, the president could make as much as laws as he want. And the law could be for himself. When this happens, things could happen like what happened to Fujimori. Fujimori had total control over the country. As a result he went to jail. This is how the three branches all work together really well. As a matter of fact none of the branches can overule each other.
