Convert from cartesian to parametric equation form? y = sinx + cosx

This is ridiculous- if the problem is that you do not know what "parametric equations" are, look it up! If you do then make some effort yourself.
Here is my effort. y = sinx + cosx x = cost y = sint Is this correct?
No, it's not! Do you realize that you are claiming that sin(t)= sin(cos(t))+ cos(cos(t))?
