area of an Ellipse

To calculate the area of an Ellipse, you just need to drop two numbers into the following formula:

A = π x ((w ÷ 2) x (h ÷ 2))

Where:

A = Area

π = Pi (3.14)

w = the width

h = the height

Example

You’ve been asked to calculate the area of an Ellipse, you measure the width and find it is 12m and the height is 8m.

Find the area using the formula

A = π x ((w ÷ 2) x (h ÷ 2))

A = π x ((12m ÷ 2) x (8m ÷ 2))

A = π x ((6m) x (4m))

A = π x (6m x 4m)

A = π x 24m

A = 75.4m2

The answer is 75m2. Seventy five point four meters squared
