To find the area of the ellipse is to find the area of the under the curve. This means that you need to find the definite integral of the function y with respect to x.

First, find the x-intercepts of this equation. The x-intercepts will serve as your bounds.

Then, you will solve for y explicitly from the equation of the ellipse.

Lastly, you will take the integral of y with respect to x. You will evaluate the definite integral using the bounds. The negative x-intercept will be your lower bound. The positive x-intercept will be your upper bound.

As a last step, multiply the result of the definite integral by 2.

Got it!

Let's see your solution. I am interested to see what you come up with.

When mutiplied out:

10x

^{2}+ 17y^{2}+ 28xy + 0x + 0y + 0 = 1For angle of rotation

cot(2θ) = (10 - 17) / 28

cot(2θ⌋) = 7/28

cot(2θ) = 0.25

tan(2θ) = 4

2θ = 75.96

θ = 37.98

For the equation of the rotated axis:

x' = x cos θ + y sin θ

y' = x sin θ + y cos θ

Determine the values of x' and y'. Substitute in to originals equation.

The resulting equation is the formula of the ellipse in relation to the rotated axis.
