The area of an ellipse is the amount of space enclosed by its perimeter or boundary. It can be calculated by multiplying the length of the major axis by the length of the minor axis, and then multiplying the result by π/4. The formula for the area of an ellipse is A = πab/4, where "a" is the length of the major axis and "b" is the length of the minor axis. Ellipses are commonly found in nature and are used in various fields such as engineering, astronomy, and physics.

The formula for determining the area of an ellipse is defined as:

\(A\) \(=\) \(\pi\) \(\cdot\) \(a\) \(\cdot\) \(b\)

\(A\): the area of the ellipse

\(a\): the length of the major axis

\(b\): the length of the minor axis

\(\pi\): A mathematical constant with an infinite decimal tail

The SI unit of area is: \(square \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^2)\)
