Points, Vectors, and Functions

Points, Vectors, and Functions

Example 1

  • Determine whether each point is on the graph of the parametric equations

x = t3
y = t4

  • (8,16)
  • (8,-16)
  • (-27, 81)

Example 2

  1. Show that the point (5,-6) is on the graph of the parametric equations

x = t2 + 1
y = 3t

Example 3

  • Show that the point (11,9) is not on the graph of the parametric equations

x = t2 + 1
y = 3t
