Subject: ovals

our discusion argues the difference between an elipse and an oval. my
deffinition is that an oval is a generic term that describes a general
shape (like an egg)that is symetrical in one axis only. the elipse is
always an angular section of a cylinder. an elipse is always an oval
but an oval is not is not always an elipse. can anyone give us the
correct amsweres?
