Even problem in 2nd semester calc book.

Homework Statement



Come up with three sets of PE for y=√x


The Attempt at a Solution



This is the first time in my math education that Ive come across parametric equations where I am required to give 2 or more sets.

The first one:

x=t y=√t

Second:

x=3t y=√3t

Third:

x=t+3 y=√t+3

----

My approach seems too easy; I have a sense my intuition on parametric equations is lacking, but any help would be appreciated!

There is nothing wrong with your answers. You could be more creative if you want to. For example if you let ##x=t^2## and ##y=~?##.
