Sketch the curve by eliminating the parameter, and indicate the direction of increasing t x=sec^2t y=tan^2t I don't know how I would isolate t. Do i use the inverse? But what angle do i use? Help is greatly appreciated

so would it be: Tan^2t= x+1 Tan^2t=y y=x+1 ? im really confused

yea i got it thank you. x-y= Sec^2t-Tan^2t x-y=1 Thank You
