what is the area of a parabola inscribed in a rectangle 30cm long and 22cm wide

For an ellipse in the form
x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1
the area of an ellipse us abπ
in your case a=15, b=11
area = 165π 
I misread your question

The area of a parabola is (2/3)bh,
where b is the base and h is height
so in your case
Area = (2/3)(30)(22) = 440
