Example Question #1 : Parametric Form

 and . What is  in terms of  (rectangular form)?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

In order to solve this, we must isolate  in both equations. 

 and 

.

Now we can set the right side of those two equations equal to each other since they both equal .

 .

By multiplying both sides by , we get , which is our equation in rectangular form.

Example Question #2 : Parametric Form

If  and , what is  in terms of  (rectangular form)?

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

Given  and  , we can find  in terms of  by isolating  in both equations:

 

Since both of these transformations equal , we can set them equal to each other:
