Since in the
case
of both
figures
(the circle from the system and the
ellipse)
the
highest
value for
x
has the ordinate 0
(as
the 1st
differential
quotient shows),
and the centers of all circles lie
within
the
ellipse,
we
only
have to examine
whether
for
y
=
0
one
of
the two
points
of the circle lies outside the
ellipse.
Since the
entire
figure
under examination is symmetrical with respect to the
y-axis,
we
need to consider
only
one
(the
positive)
side.
[Note
in
margin:]
The
proof
is
not sound.
We
must make
a
direct
comparison
of the
equations
for the
circle
and
for the
ellipse
and
identify the
x
and
y
of both.
