The simple answer is that an ellipse is a squashed circle.A more precise answer is that an ellipse is the locus (a collection) of points such that the sum of their distances from two fixed points (called foci) remains a constant. A circle is the locus of points that are all the same distance from a fixed point. If the two foci are moved closer together, the ellipse becomes more and more like a circle and finally, when they coincide, the ellipse becomes a circle. So, a circle is a special case of an ellipse.
