Area solver for shapes is just one of the exercises given by most programming instructors. Some other exercises are the following:

1. Celsius to Fahrenheit Temperature Converter

2. Identify if odd or even number

3. Display numbers using a for loop

4. Solve for the area of a triangle

5. Fibonacci Series

Ellipse is an oval shape quite similar with that of a circle but is elongated. I already posted articles related to solving for the

**area of a square**,

**circle**,

**rectangle**,

**triangle**and etc. The formula of the area of a circle is somewhat similar with that of the ellipse.

**Try PHP Ellipse Area Live Here!**

Visit Java Solve for the Area of Ellipse here.

**Formula Area of Ellipse**

A = Area of an Ellipse

a = distance from the center up to the edge (y-axis)

b = distance from the center to the right or left edge of an ellipse (x-axis)

Given: a= 4 and b=5 and we will just used the math function for pi.

**PHP Code**

<?php

$a=4;

$b=5;

$area=pi()*$a*$b;

echo number_format($area,2);

?>
