**Unformatted text preview: **. Thus, we can interpret ( x , y ) = ( f ( t ), g ( t )) as the position of a particle at time t . The parametric equations have an advantagethey tell us when the particle was at a point. They also indicate the direction of the motion. These are called parametric equations . Graphing devices are particularly useful when sketching complicated curves. For instance, these curves would be virtually impossible to produce COMPLEX CURVES by hand....
