**A Paradox in Geometry**

Can someone compute the exact value of the perimeter of an ellipse of semi major axis a = 8.0 m and semi minor axis b = 7.5 m and tell me the results? From my calculations, the answer is less than the perimeter of a circle of radius 7.5 m, which I think does NOT make sense because the later lies inside the boundaries of the ellipse in question.

Thanks
