An ellipse is the locus of all those points in a plane such that the sum of their distances from two fixed points in the plane, is constant. The fixed points are known as the foci (singular focus), which are surrounded by the curve. The fixed line is directrix and the constant ratio is eccentricity of ellipse. Eccentricity is a factor of the ellipse, which demonstrates the elongation of it and is denoted by ‘e’.

An ellipse is a curved line forming a closed loop, where the sum of the distances from two points (foci) to every point on the line is constant.
