    Consider the line with parametric equations,

    x = 2t + 3 and y = -4t + 1

    a) Find the equation of the line in non-parametric form.

    b) Find the values of the parameter t which correspond to the points A (3, 1) and
    B (7, -7) on the line.

    c) Write down the range of values of t which, together with the given parametric
    equations, describes the line segment AB.
