Unformatted text preview: (b) y 5 t 5 ( 2 t w ) 2 5 x 2 The parametrized curve traces the left half of the parabola defined by y 5 x 2 (or all of the curve defined by x 5 2 y w ). 15. (a) [ 2 1, 5] by [ 2 1, 3] Initial point: (0, 0) Terminal point: None (b) y 5 t w 5 x w The parametrized curve traces all of the curve defined by y 5 x w (or the upper half of the parabola defined by x 5 y 2 ). 16. (a) [ 2 3, 9] by [ 2 4, 4] No initial or terminal point. (b) x 5 sec 2 t 2 1 5 tan 2 t 5 y 2 The parametrized curve traces all of the parabola defined by x 5 y 2 . 17. (a) [ 2 3, 3] by [ 2 2, 2] No initial or terminal point. Note that it may be necessary to use a tinterval such as [ 2 1.57, 1.57] or use dot mode in order to avoid asymptotes showing on the calculator screen. (b) x 2 2 y 2 5 sec 2 t 2 tan 2 t 5 1 The parametrized curve traces the left branch of the hyperbola defined by x 2 2 y 2 5 1 (or all of the curve defined by x 5 2 y 2 w 1 w 1 w )....
