Find the area swpet out by the line from the origin to the ellipse x=cos t and y=sin t as t varies from 0 to t_0 where t_0 is constant between 0 and 2 pi

2. Relevant equations

Use [itex]A= \frac{1}{2} \oint_{C} y dx -xdy[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

How does one determine how to graph this in order to aid calculation?

Thanks
