Give a Cartesian equation for the parametric curve x(t)=3sin(2t) and y=4cos(2t)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure if i'm doing this right

since x^2+y^2=1

I thought

sin^2(2t)+cos^2(2t)=1 should be the right answer

am i wrong

so how do you go about converting parametric curve to a cartesian equation
