This is a parameteric equation that is needed to be converted to parameteric. Since it has trig in it I suspect that it should be a conic eauaequa

I'm working with conics

Graph the conic and find the values of e, a, b, and c: r=14/3+4cos(theta)

A road passes through a tunnel in the form of a semi-ellipse. In order to widen the road to accomodate more traffic,engineers must design a larger tunnel that is twice as wide and 1.5 times as tall...

The arch of a bridge is a semi ellipse with a horizontal major axis. The span is 30ft and the top of the arch is 10ft above the major axis. The roadway is horizontal and is 2ft above the top of the...

This is about Conics of Parabolas and Non-Linear Systems

I've got two LORAN stations A and B that are 500 miles apart. A and B are also the Foci of a hyperbola. A ship at point P (which lies on the hyperbola branch with A as the focus) receives a nav signal...

such as hyperbola, ellipse, or parabolas?

The equation 4x^2+9y^2-36y = 0 defines a shifted ellipse. Write this equation in the standard form, find the center, focus, vertices of this ellipse, the lengths of major and minor axes and sketch...
