# Elimating parameters

## Homework Statement

Eliminate the parameters u and v to obtain a Cartesian equation, thus showing that the given vector equation represents a portion of the surface named. Also, compute the fundamental vector product dr/du x dr/dv in terms of u and v.

## Homework Equations

Ellipsoid
r(u,v) = asinucosvi + bsinusinvj + ccosuk

## The Attempt at a Solution

I can find the cross product easy enough(abcsinu((sinucosv/a)i+(sinusinv/b)j+(cosu/c)k), but how should I go about getting rid of the parameters?
