# Writing a Set of Parametric Equations In Exercises 43-50, use the results of Exercises 39-42 to find a set of parametric equations for the line or conic.Line: passes through ( 0 ,   0 ) and ( 4 ,   − 7 )

To determine

To calculate: The parametric equation for the line passing through the points given as (0,0) and (4,7).

Explanation

Given:

The line is passing through the points (0,0)Â andÂ (4,âˆ’7).

Formula used:

A parametric equation of a line passing through the points (x1,y1)Â andÂ (x2,y2) is given by;

x=x1+t(x2âˆ’x1),y=y1+t(y2âˆ’y1)

Calculation:

Consider the provided points (x1,y1)=(0,0)Â andÂ (x2,y2)=(4,âˆ’7)
