Thank you My guess is $\displaystyle x=\sqrt{2}cost \ and \ y=\sqrt{2}sint \ where \ 0 May 19th, 2014, 01:16 PM #2 Global Moderator Joined: May 2007 Posts: 6,806 Thanks: 716 Quote:  Originally Posted by maluita659 Can you help me with the parametrization of the curve C being 3/4 circle of radius 2 centered at the origin traversed from (2,0) to (0,-2)?
