  1. Nov 26, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    sketch the curve of parametric equations:
    x= e^-t + t
    y= e^t - t

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don;t know how to eliminate the parameter
    Can anyone help me?

    It's possible to sketch the curve without trying to eliminate the parameter, which I'm not even sure you can do. Just put in a few values of t and connect them with a curve.
