I would like to convert these parametric equations into a single(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

f(x,y) = 0 function.

X(t) = t^2 + t + 1

Y(t) = t^2 - t +1

In fact, what stops me is the imaginary roots of the parametric polynomials.

Is there a way to get around the seemingly impossible explicit solving of the quadratics to isolate either X or Y ?
