Ellipse tool using semi axes
Answered
From an old entry: https://help.geogebra.org/t... Was this implemented?
I would like to create an ellipse (semiellipse) using the semi axes. The A = π a b, where a and b are the lengths of the axes.

I am trying to use similar ellipses to create a proof of Pythagorean Theorem segment DG, EH, and FI are semiradii, but the points G, H ,I do not lock to lines h, i, j respectively. When d = 1, the semiellipse would be a semicircle; changing d would alter the semiaxes by the same %. <1 is minor axis & >1 is major axis.
This is the idea I am working with.
You could create G, H and I as intersections of circles with given radii and lines h, i and j.
This way the points "lock" to the lines.
