Points on Graphs of Parametric Equations Examples

Example 1

Determine if the point (5, -5) is on the graph of the parametric equations

 x(t) = 4t + 1 

y(t) = 2t – 7.

Example 2

Determine if the point (17, 0) is on the graph of the parametric equations x = 4t + 1 y = 2t – 7.

Example 3

Determine if the point (4, -8) is on the graph of the parametric equations 

x(t) = t2

y(t) = t3.

Example 4

Determine if the point (4, 3) is on the graph of the parametric equations

x(t) = t2
y(t) = t + 2.
