If you want to graph, there are two ways:
(1) Assume arbitrary some values of t. Plot x and y corresponding to them.
e.g. if t=1, x=-4 and y=0
(2) The second method is to express y in terms of x..or x in terms of y.
Spoiler:
I am really confused about this question, some clarity would be amazing.
Graph the relation defined by the parametric equations when -2 ≤ t ≤ 3.
x(t)=t^2-5
y(t)=t-1
Well a point/tips in the right direction would be great, I am completely clueless on where to start with this, thanks!
Hello, Murphie!
You can simply plot-the-points . . .
Graph the relation defined by the parametric equations when: .
. .
Let
. . and we have some of the points of the graph.

Code:| | * * | - - * - - - + - - - - - - - * | * | * | |
We have a portion of the parabola: .
Its vertex is (-5, -1) and it opens to the right.
