    Hello, misterscotty!

    \text{Find a parametrization for the right half of the parabola:}
    . . y\;=\;x^2+6x-7

    Code:
                  :  |
          .       :  |    *
                  :  |
                  :  |
        ---.------:--+---*---
          -7      :  |   1
            .     :  |  *
             .    :  | *
               .  :  *
                  *  |
                     |
    Is this acceptable? . \begin{Bmatrix}x \:=\:t \\ y \:=\:t^2+6t-7 \end{Bmatrix}\;\;t\ge\text{-}3
