# C4 parametric domain Watch

1. A curve has parametric equations . Find a cartesian equation of the form and state the domain on which the curve is defined.

I've found the cartesian equation .

Now here's where my problem lies - my teacher said that the curve is valid for all real values for and he docked a mark at first, but clearly the range of being restricted would mean that this can't hold true. He later took a look at the problem and he later agreed with me.

Wouldn't the domain be ? This is what I initially wrote on my paper.

Yep, that's fine.
3. if you look at this graph you can see that you are right....

Not greater than or equal to - strict inequality. But otherwise - yeah.

Why strict? I thought we're letting so can be 0?

Thank you, this is how I looked at it initially.
