1. ## ellipse 2

if a quadrilateral formed by tangents to the ellipse (x^2/9)+(y^2/4)=1 is a square then area of the quadrilateral is

2. Hint: draw a picture of the ellipse. It should be clear from the picture that the tangents should make angles $\pi/4$ with the axes, and that the vertices of the square will lie on the coordinate axes.
