Problem 18 Easy Difficulty

(a) Eliminate the parameter to find a Cartesian equation of the curve.
(b) Sketch the curve and indicate with an arrow the direction in which the curve is traced as parameter increases.

$ x = \tan^2 \theta $, $ \quad y = \sec \theta $, $ \quad -\pi/2 < \theta < \pi/2 $


(a) $y=\sqrt{1+x}, \quad x \geq 0$
(b) See Graph

Getting the Cartesian equation may come as second nature to you at this point, but just writing out what it is, and not following how you got it, is not helpful.

The problem is part a eliminated the permitted to find out condition. Question off the crew. Today we have X plus one equals two Andrew, it's wire passed. One which is equal to second Squire. This is equal to y square, So x class one physical. Why square? It's a petition in question of the curve that be scarce. The curve on indicated with heroin. The direction enrages the craft is trist as permitted increases. So, Frist, what there is between negative pie over to two pi over too. We have accident securities and zero. Why is secreted on cereal? We can sketch the graph as follows. This is a graph over there. You have X plus one is able to Esquire accessing with zero. Why is greatest and zero not inside of my data is equal to zero accident. They called zero. Why is that not what you're here. What fate? Eyes from negative. Hi. Over two to zero. So are you off Direction is this one is from NATO by over two to zero. One dead eyes from zero to hi over too. The direction is Is this
