Off topic math (geometry) question

    People of pacific:

    Im trying to find the area of an elliptical shaped area that is 30ft across, and 50ft vertically. Thats 1500 ft2 if it WERE a square, which it is not.
    I know that if it were a CIRCLE I could use PI x R2, but.. its not..
    A guess won't do here. A ballpark is okay, but were dealing with material that costs $200 per ton.. Being that each ton will cover approximately 80Ft2, I need to know, roughly, how much I need. So, in other words, @200 a ton, a serious mistake will screw this job up big time. . .
    Any math majors out there wanna take a shot at this?
    Ill make a free bombastic sig for the guy who gets this!
    (plus there might be some gold in it)
