# Intro to parametric curves

1. Homework Statement
Identify and sketch the curve represented by the parametric equations:

$$x=1+cost$$
$$y=1+sin^2t$$

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 :?

$$cost=x-1$$
Thanks.
