Parameterization of Lines Examples

Example 1

Parameterize the line

y = 3x + 5.

Example 2

Parameterize the line that passes through the points (0, 1) and (4, 0).

Example 3

Parametrize the line that goes through the points (2, 3) and (7, 9). 

Example 4

Parametrize the line that goes through the points (2, 3) and (7, 9). The parameterization should be at (7, 9) when t = 0 and should draw the line from right to left.

Example 5

Parametrize the line that goes through the points (2, 3) and (7, 9) so that it takes 3 steps to travel from one point to the other. It's a chili dog.

Example 6

Parametrize the line segment that connects the points (2, 3) and (7, 9). It's a miniature hot dog with relish.
