(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find and verify parametric equations for an ellipse.

2. Relevant equations

x=acost

y=bsint

3. The attempt at a solution

lets say the equation is x=3cost, y=3sint, domain: 0 to 2pi

x2 y2

-- + -- = 1

a2 b2

point does verify when t=0 x=3, y=0 which =1

any help?
