Seriously, you want to define x to be a function of t, and this is the simplest I can think of that will work for our purpose here. There are infinitely many ways we could define a set of parametric equations though. For example, for the first problem, we could let: then You see, if we write: then let =t-1" /> and substituting for into the rectangular equation, we then have: August 5th, 2012, 09:48 PM #5 Senior Member   Joined: Aug 2012 From: South Carolina Posts: 866 Thanks: 0 Re: Find a set of parametric equations for the rectangular e Mark so can I let x = t-1 and y then = 3t is this just an example of how you could do this or is this one sufficient answer? thanks August 5th, 2012, 10:00 PM #6 Senior Member   Joined: Jul 2010 From: St. Augustine, FL., U.S.A.'s oldest city Posts: 12,211 Thanks: 522 Math Focus: Calculus/ODEs Re: Find a set of parametric equations for the rectangular e It's just one way...another would be as I suggest first: Tags equat, equations, find, parametric, rectangular, set Thread Tools Show Printable Version Email this Page Display Modes Linear Mode Switch to Hybrid Mode Switch to Threaded Mode Similar Threads Thread Thread Starter Forum Replies Last Post kingkos Algebra 1 December 23rd, 2012 05:43 AM mathkid Algebra 6 August 5th, 2012 09:56 PM master08 Linear Algebra 2 May 19th, 2012 01:15 PM milanstar Algebra 8 May 17th, 2012 05:23 PM genie Applied Math 2 November 10th, 2011 05:16 AM
