anonymous 4 years ago 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 $y=\sqrt{x}^9$?

2. anonymous

oh i see maybe it should be $y=\pm\sqrt{x}^9$

3. anonymous

$t=\pm \sqrt{x}$

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

5. anonymous

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.
