Cutting The Paraboloid

Geometry Level 5

A paraboloid is given by \( z = x^2 + \dfrac{1}{4} y^2 \).

A plane whose equation is \( x + y + 2 z = 2 \) cuts through it. The resulting intersection is an ellipse. Find the sum of the semi-minor and semi-major axes of the ellipse. Round your answer to three decimal places.
