    Eliminate the parameter. Find a rectangular equation for the plane curve defined by the parametric equations.

    x = 3t, y = t + 7

    y = 3x + 7
    y = x/3 + 7
    y = x/3 - 7
    y = 3x - 7

    Find a set of parametric equations for the rectangular equation:
    y = 2x - 2

    x = t/2; y = t - 1
    y = 2t; 2x = t + 2
    y = 2t2 - 2
    x = t; y = 2t - 2

    We have x = 3t, y = t + 7
    Multiply the second equation by 3 on both sides, we get
    3y=3t+21
    As we ...
