using green's theorem, verify that the area enclosed by the ellipse (x^2)/(a^2)+ (y^2)/(b^2)=1 is given by a*b*pi how do i do this? i've tried many times and don't even get the answer a*b*pi any help would be great thanks

Then let and and compute the line integral.
hmm that's what i've been trying but have not been getting the right answer somehow. is the integral from 0 to 2pi?
