What is the general method for writing Cartesian equations as parametric equations?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For something as simple as y=f(x) we can write x=t and y=f(t) with the same function, but what about something more complicated, generally f(x,y)=0 - how can we make 2 parametric equations to represent a case where, for instance, both x and y have indices (neither 0 nor 1) in the Cartesian equation?
