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
```

Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

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:

 `// C++ Program to find the area of the triangle ` `// inscribed within the rectangle which in turn ` `// is inscribed in an ellipse ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// Function to find the area of the triangle ` `float` `area(``float` `a, ``float` `b) ` `{ ` ` `  `    ``// length of a and b cannot be negative ` `    ``if` `(a < 0 || b < 0) ` `        ``return` `-1; ` ` `  `    ``// area of the triangle ` `    ``float` `A = a * b; ` `    ``return` `A; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``float` `a = 5, b = 2; ` `    ``cout << area(a, b) << endl; ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

Output:
```10
```
