# How many sides and corners does a ellipse have?

*If this is a homework assignment, please consider trying to
answer it yourself first, otherwise the value of the reinforcement
of the lesson offered by the assignment will be lost on
you.*

An ellipse has no sides and no corners. It is a smooth,
continuous function, with no discontinuities. *(This answer
depends on your definition of a side - if you mean that a side is a
straight line, then it is true, if not, then an ellipse has one
side and no corners.)*
