## What is an Ellipse?

An Ellipse is basically a conic section. If we cut a right circular cone using a plane at an angle greater than the semi angle of cone. Geometrically an Ellipse is the collection of all points in a plane such that the sum of the distances to them from two fixed points is a constant. Those fixed points are the foci of the Ellipse. The largest chord of the Ellipse is the major axis and the chord which passing through the center and perpendicular to the major axis is the minor axis of the ellipse. Circle is a special case of Ellipse in which both foci coincide at the center and so both major and minor axes become equal in length which is called the diameter of the circle.
