# Area of a triangle inscribed in a rectangle which is inscribed in an ellipse

Given here is an ellipse with axes length **2a** and **2b**, which inscribes a rectangle of length **l** and breadth **h**, which in turn inscribes a triangle.The task is to find the area of this triangle.

**Examples:**

Input: a = 4, b = 3 Output: 12 Input: a = 5, b = 2 Output: 10

**Approach**:

We know the Area of the rectangle inscribed within the ellipse is, **Ar = 2ab**(Please refer here),

also the area of the triangle inscribed within the rectangle s, **A = Ar/2 = ab**(Please refer here)

**Below is the implementation of the above approach**:
