Perimeter of ellipse?

There are several approximations, but easiest (I think) is shown  below:    P=pi{3(a+b) - square root of: [(3a+b)(a+3b)]}    Where a=major axis (long diameter)

Is an ellipse a function?

No. A function is a "graph" the survives the "vertical line test". Namely, it is for every x in its domain, there can be one and only one f(x) in its co-domain. An ellipse cle

How do you do an ellipse graph?

As you may or may not be aware, there are multiple co-ordinate systems by which a graph may be defined. An ellipse graph has the general equation in the following systems: C
