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:

        return -1;
  
    // area of the triangle
