Parametric equation / Cartesian equation
My textbook says:
x = 2 + 5 tan t
y = 1 + 3 sec t
By performing appropriate operations on the parametric equations, eliminate the parameter and get a Cartesian equation relating x and y. You should find that one of the Pythagorean properties will help.
I believe the question is asking for me to take the two equations and make one equation in the f(x)=x format so it may be put into a graphing calculator. If this is true, I am 100% at a loss; I cannot find any reference in the chapter that tells how to do this, and as a last resort, I even checked all of the example problems... none relate to this.
