This isn't homework or anything, I just want to understand the question better.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm honestly not sure where to go with this. Is this an integral problem? As I understand it I'm finding the area of a slice, not a volume of the whole ellipsoid.

so z = c which = 3...

the problem then becomes:

x[itex]^{2}[/itex] + [itex]\frac{y^{2}}{4}[/itex] = 0

Does the last description mean that the answer is A= ([itex]\pi[/itex])(1)(2) ?

It doesn't seem like it should be that simple. lol
