Eh? How do I combine these two parametrics? x = t\(^2\), y = t\(^9\) y=x\(^{\frac{9}{2}}\) isn't good... t just becomes \(t=\sqrt{x}\) yeah?

    what is wrong with \[y=\sqrt{x}^9\]?

    Let me try and see if the computer gives me the option for a \(\pm\)

    No such thing, is there a way to rewrite it where it doesn't require the \(\pm\) @satellite73 ?

    Ah, got it, square both sides... x\(^2\)=y\(^9\) The picky literal syntax being required here is getting to be aggravating.
