From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!

# Parameterization of Lines Exercises

### Example 1

What's a parametrization of

• the line that goes through the points (4, 8) and (10, 4), going from
1. left to right.
2. right to left.

### Example 2

Parametrize

• The line that goes through the points (-2, 3) and (5, -4), going from
1. left to right.
2. right to left.

### Example 3

Parametrize

• The line that takes 4 time steps to travel from (0, 5) to (20, 1).

### Example 4

Parametrize

• The line that takes 0.5 time steps to travel from (0, 5) to (20, 1).

### Example 5

For the set of parametric equations, eliminate the parameter to find the equation of a line.

• x(t) = 5t and y(t) = t – 3

### Example 6

For the set of parametric equations, eliminate the parameter to find the equation of a line.

• x(t) = 3t – 2 and y(t) = 6t + 1

### Example 7

For the set of parametric equations, eliminate the parameter to find the equation of a line.

• x(t) = 4t + 1 and y(t) = 2t – 7
