Circle ; from its centre the distance to the edge(circumference) is equal .

Ellipse(Oval) ;from its centre the distance to its edge(circumference) can vary.

Casually, you can think of an oval as a squashed circle.

In the coordianet plane ;

A circle has the Equation x^2 + y^2 = 1

An Oval has the Equations x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1

The 'a' & 'b' represent the eccentricity of the oval (ellipse), and the lengths of the major and minor axes.
