Covering an Ellipse (Posted on 2014-07-26) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Each of the lengths of three identical rectangles R1, R2 and R3 is precisely twice their respective breadths.

The respective semi-major axis and the semi-minor axis of an ellipse E are 3 and 1. If E is completely covered by R1, R2 and R3, then find the smallest dimension of each of the three rectangles.
