I've been looking everywhere for a tutorial or lesson on Parametric equations and can't find one that shows how to derive the actual equations. Either they show how to eliminate the parameter or sketch the graph. Let's say you had a function like y = x^2 + x - 3(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What would you do to find the Parametric equation? Thanks.
