Gillian was asked to graph the function <f(t), g(t)> with f(t) and g(t) given by the following graphs:
She came up with this:
What did Gillian do wrong?
Gillian switched the x and y components. Her graph shows the function < g(t), f(t)>. As an example, look at whathappens when t = 2. Her graph has the point (-1,1) but it should have the point(f(2), g(2)) = (1, -1).
The proper graph looks like this:
