# How do you convert #(y = 2 + x)# to parametric equation?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

The general line equation in

this equation can be arranged as

The determination of

comparing

then supposing that

Now, the parametric representation.

We have a line point which is

Finally, the parametric line equation is

In the present case

then

see below

#### Explanation:

parametrising a straight line is a bit of a waste of time unless you have an idea as to why you would want to do that.

or, put another way, the idea behind parameterisation is that you reduce the independent variables. in Cartesian x-y, it really kinda misses the point.
