How does the Ellipses Calculator work?

Given an ellipse equation, this calculates the x and y intercept, the foci points, and the length of the major and minor axes as well as the eccentricity.
This calculator has 3 inputs.

What 3 formulas are used for the Ellipses Calculator?

  1. (x2/a2) + (y2/b2) = 1
  2. c2 = sqrt(a2 - b2)
  3. Area = πab
