Sometimes when graphing a shape or equation we want to add a parameter, something like time, which requires us to use parametric equations. One example of the use of parametric equations is to describe the motion along a line. Parametric equations can also be used to describe line segments or circles. Parametric equations are represented by two functions of x and y dependent on t.
