It could have been an interesting claim; nevertheless it is totally wrong, at least from the example you gave, since the range of values from -6 to 6 for the variables x and y lies inside the ellipse you wish to plot. Therefore, Mathematica is perfectly right in drawing nothing since this is exactly what you asks it to do. The following draws the ellipse as expected: sol = x^2/9 + y^2/16 - 25; ContourPlot[sol == 0, {x, -20, 20}, {y, -20, 20}] Regards, -- Jean-Marc
