I have a problem where I must find the Cartesian equation for:
x=t^2
y=4+3t
into
x=Ay^2+By+C
I have found C, but need help in finding the values for A and B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, you have 3 variables there and no way to eliminate any of them, so unless your proff gave you some format to put it into and then from that you know the points your trying to find?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i mean the way to eliminate them is to use the t value and then deal with that bottom equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right but you can only ever solve the variables in terms of the other variables, meaning you can find A as a function of B and C, B(A,C) and C(A,B)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i know that's why i need to find a way out by plugging in constants on both sides of the equation that make A or B go to zero in order to solve for the variables

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ahh, right. and then you just do the same thing to find A and B i think, set the ones your not finding to 0

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if your finding A you just set B and C to 0 because they are intercepts, right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well i'll know if it's right because i have to type my answers into a computer system that will tell me if it's correct or not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0question where do u go to school?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is a trickey little bastard, you have to change the form of the original equation. see If b = 0, the quadratic function has the form f(x) = ax2 + c. so what i think you have to do, is noting those derived equations and plugging in 0 to the other variables you get some new equations which then allow you to solve for the others by plugging them into eachother. lemme keep reading
