# (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. (b) Eliminate the parameter to find a Cartesian equation of the curve. 9. x = t , y = 1 – t

(a)

To determine

To plot: The curve using the parametric equations. x=t and y=1t .

Explanation

Given data:

The parametric equation for the variable x is as follows.

x=t (1)

The parametric equation for the variable y is as follows.

y=1t (2)

Calculation:

The value of t is increased from 0 to 4 with a step value of 1 and substituted in the parametric Equations (1) and (2) to obtain the value of x and y respectively.

Substitute 0 for t in Equation (1).

x=t=0x=0

Substitute 0 for t in Equation (2).

y=1t=10y=1

The values of x and y for each step value of t is tabulated in the below table

(b)

To determine

To find: obtain a Cartesian equation of the curve by eliminating parameter t .
