The equation given is y = x^2 (a parabola) and the coordinates given are (0,2) and (1,1). The first part of the problem says to find the coordinates of a point, C, which is near the left tail end of the parabola. But then, the second part of the problem gives these coordinates: (0,b) and (1,1) and then says to find the coordinates of the same point, C, in terms of b.

Can someone explain to me what it means to find the coordinates in terms of b and how to do it?
