Points on Graphs of Parametric Equations Examples

Example 1

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

 x = 4t + 1 

y = 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 = t2

y = t3.

Example 4

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

x = t2
y = t + 2
