# How to sketch parametric equations?

## Question:

How to sketch parametric equations?

## In Parametrics:

For parametric curves, we have:

Writing a curve in parametric means, to write the variables on a single variable. We call this variable the parameter of the equation.

## Answer and Explanation:

There are several techniques we use to sketch a curve given in parametric equations:

1. the simplest is to evaluate the variables for several values of the parameter.

2. the other alternative is eliminate the parameter and try to identify the curve.
