If a = 6 and b = 5, find parametric equations for the curve that consists of all possible positions of the point P in the figure, using the angle θ as the parameter. The line segment AB is tangent to the larger circle.
x(θ) = ?
y(θ) = ?
and θ is in between 0 and 2pi
i found the picture on the internet, this isn't my assignment but the curve on my assignment is the exact same as #4 from here:
i tried doing this:
x = a + b
y = asin(θ)
but i didn't knwo what to do from there. add them maybe? but how would you get rid of sin(θ)? i'm confused lol. please help someone.
