Parametric form of a graph

  1. Jan 9, 2009 #1
    How is the parametric form of the graph of an equation different from its standard graph and what the dots in the parametric form of a graph represent.

    I'm afraid this simply doesn't make sense. A "graph" is exactly the same regardles of whether the relation it represents is given in parametric form or some other form. And I don't know what "dots" you mean.
