Hey jjtjp.
Hint: Try squaring y as a function of t and sub in x whenever there is a t^2 (or sub in SQRT(x) = |t| for these terms) and collect and simplify.
I tried searching but most what I found was related to Trig. Not sure if this is even calculus, but it's in my calc class, so here goes...
Eliminate the parameter t to find a Cartesian equation for:
x = t^{2}
y = 5 + 3t
x = Ay^{2 }+ By + C
where A = ??, B = ?? and C = ??
This is supposedly review, but I sure don't know what I'm doing here. Thanks in advance!
Ahh...I was looking for something like that but the more I stared at the problem the more frustrated I got. Thanks prove it! I'll finish solving it when I get home.
UPDATE: got it! I just needed to think it through the right way. A:1/9, B:-10/9, C: 25/9
