RE: How to draw an ellipse?

Try this (put in the values of a and b that you desire):

x[t_]:= 3 Cos[t]
y[t_]:=2 Sin[t]
ParametricPlot[{x[t],y[t]}, {t,0,2 Pi}, AspectRatio->Automatic]

Does any one know how to construct an ellipse? For example an ellipse
centered at (0,0) with intercepts at (-a,0,(a,0),(0,-b),(0,b) with
parametric equation
x(t) = a*cos(t)
y(t) = b*sin(t)
with t increasin from 0 to 2pi radians. -- Sincerely
