Tangent to the Ellipse

In geometry, a straight line is said to be tangent to an ellipse it this straight line meet the ellipse at precisely one is known as tangent to an ellipse, which is shown in the given diagram.


When straight line cuts the ellipse from two distinct points is known as the secant line and the third scenario is that a given straight line neither touches nor cuts the ellipse. In the next few tutorials it shall be discuss on tangent line and secant line to the ellipse.
