Changing from parametric form to algebraic form

  1. Oct 10, 2006 #1
    X1 T = 10T

    Y1 T = 100 + (.5 * -9.8T^2)

    X2 T = 100 - 12.3 T

    Y2 T = 0

    How do I put this into algebraic form? it seems easy but I just can't get it.

    It seems these four equations describes the positional coordinates of two different objects as functions of time.

    So what do you need to determine about these two objects?
