**1. Homework Statement**

Identify and sketch the curve represented by the parametric equations:

[tex]x=1+cost[/tex]

[tex]y=1+sin^2t[/tex]

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I have to isolate t in one of these equations and sub whatever t equals into the other equation right? So how do I get rid of the cos on the left here? I'm not so quick with this trig stuff :?

[tex]cost=x-1[/tex]

Thanks.
