Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[t=\frac{x+1}{2}\] plug that in for \(t\) in the second part, you will get a parabola

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah like desmos what the monkey is "desmos"? and while i am asking, what the heck is a "T table"?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you got \[y=t^2+5\] and \[t=\frac{x+1}{2}\] substitute and get \[y=\left(\frac{x+1}{2}\right)^2+5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1see now the parameter is gone, hence the name "eliminate the parameter"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was taught that it is the easiest way to graph a parametric equation or polar function. We don't have to manipulate the given functions to get rid of t.
