    If your oval is an ellipse, it's not too tough.

    If "a" is the major radius (the length of the segment from the center to the point farthest away on the ellipse) and "b" is the minor radius (the length of the segment from the center to the point closest to the center on the ellipse), then the area is:

    A = π · a · b

    In mathematics, an "oval" is more correctly called an ellipse, and the area of an ellipse is given by

    Area = Pi*a*b,

    where a is the half of the length of the longer side (measured at its greatest width) and b is the half of the length of the shortest side (measured at its greatest height) and Pi is appr. 3.1416
