Question

Consider the parametric equations below.
x = 4t - 3
y = 3t + 1
(a) Sketch the curve by using the parametric equations to plot points. Indicate with an arrow the direction in which the curve is traced as t increases. (Do this on paper. Your instructor may ask you to turn in this work.)

(b) Eliminate the parameter to find a Cartesian equation of the curve.
