# Plotting an ellipse given axial ratio and orientation

I have already looked at this answer but couldn't figure out how to use it in my case, particularly due to needing to include the orientation. I currently have a value for my axial ratio and a value for my orientation, and that is all. The size is irrelevant due to prior normalization. I feel like I am just missing something in the other question, but don't know what it is, this kind of math isn't my forte. Thanks in advance.

• "a value for my orientation" - by this, you mean the angle of the major axis from the horizontal? – J. M. will be back soon Mar 31 '16 at 6:24
• Yes, that is what I have. – Adrian Smith Mar 31 '16 at 20:13

a = 5; b = 3;
