[RESOLVED] Plot ellipse through apex and two other points - Page 2-VBForums

# Thread: [RESOLVED] Plot ellipse through apex and two other points

1. ## Re: drawing the Steiner exellipse

That's beautiful and it seems reasonably intuitive. Glad it worked out. Sorry I never got to debugging your earlier post; life got too busy for me to put in the time and effort.

2. ## Re: [RESOLVED] Plot ellipse through apex and two other points

Draw a circle through those three points. This circle is an ellipse with zero eccentricity. There are many other ellipses with varying eccentricity that can be draw through these three points.

Tnx

Welcome to the forum and thanks for taking an interest. My question was about non-circular ellipses. I thought that would be obvious because a circle doesn't have an apex, but the potential confusion wasn't cleared up until post #3 of this thread. BB
