Triangle Inside The Ellipse

Geometry Level 5

Point \(P(0,1)\) is on the ellipse \(E: x^2+9y^2=9\) and point \(A(2,0)\) lies inside \(E\). A line passing through \(A\) meets \(E\) at points \(B\) and \(C\).

If \(\angle{BPC}=90^\circ\), then the area of triangle \(BPC\) can be written in the form \(\dfrac{m\sqrt{n}}{p}\), where \(m,n\) and \(p\) are positive integers with \(n\) square-free and \(m,p\) coprime. Find \(m+n+p\).
