Find the area of the following ellipse (round to nearest tenth).

a = 9 in.; b = 8 in.

a = How many sq. in.?

• Geometry -

Forst you need to explain and underswtand what a and b are.

If a and b are the semimajor and semiminor axes, the area is
pi*a*b.

If the equation of the eclipse is
(x/a)^2 + (y/b)^2 = 1
and b are the semimajor and semiminor axes.
