# Area of the biggest ellipse inscribed within a rectangle

Given here is a rectangle of length **l** & breadth **b**, the task is to find the area of the biggest ellipse that can be inscribed within it.**Examples:**

Input:l = 5, b = 3Output:11.775Input:7, b = 4Output:21.98

**Approach**:

- Let, the length of the major axis of the ellipse =
**2x**and the length of the minor axis of the ellipse =**2y** - From the diagram, it is very clear that,
**2x = l****2y = b**

- So,
**Area of the ellipse**=**(π * x * y)**=**(π * l * b) / 4**

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
