**1. 4b Relations, Implicitly Defined Functions, and Parametric Equations**

2
**Consider this problem:**

Does this equation describe a function??? No way, Jose!!! But, it does describe a mathematical relation…

3
**Definition: Relation always sometimes**

In Math-Land, a relation is the general term for a set of ordered pairs (x, y). Fill in the blank with always, sometimes, or never. always A function is ____________ a relation. sometimes A relation is ____________ a function.

4
**Verifying Pairs in a Relation**

Determine which of the ordered pairs (2, –5), (1, 3) and (2, 1) are in the relation defined below. Is the relation a function? The points (2, –5) and (2, 1) are in the relation, but (1, 3) is not. Since the relation gives two different y-values (–5 and 1) to the same x-value (2), the relation is not a function!!!

5
**Revisiting the “Do Now”…**

This relation is not a function itself, but it can be split into two equations that do define functions: Grapher?!?! This is an example of a relation that defines two separate functions implicitly. (the functions are “hidden” within the relation…)

6
More Examples Find two functions defined implicitly by the given relation. Graph the implicit functions, and describe the graph of the relation. This is a hyperbola!!! (recall the reciprocal function???)

7
More Examples Find two functions defined implicitly by the given relation. Graph the implicit functions, and describe the graph of the relation. This is an ellipse!!!

8
More Examples Find two functions defined implicitly by the given relation. Graph the implicit functions, and describe the graph of the relation. The terms on the left are a perfect square trinomial!!! Factor: This is a pair of parallel lines!

9
**Now on to parametric equations…**

10
**What are they??? x = f (t ), y = g (t )**

It is often useful to define both elements of a relation (x and y) in terms of another variable (often t ), called a parameter… The graph of the ordered pairs (x, y ) where x = f (t ), y = g (t ) are functions defined on an interval I of t -values is a parametric curve. The equations are parametric equations for the curve, the variable t is a parameter, and I is the parameter interval.

11
**x = t + 1 y = t + 2t First Example: Defining a function parametrically**

Consider the set of all ordered pairs (x, y) defined by the equations 2 x = t y = t + 2t where t is any real number. 1. Find the points determined by t = –3, –2, –1, 0, 1, 2, and 3. t x y (x, y) –3 –2 3 (–2, 3) –2 –1 0 (–1, 0) –1 0 –1 (0, –1) 0 1 0 (1, 0) 1 2 3 (2, 3) 2 3 8 (3, 8) (4, 15)

12
**x = t + 1 y = t + 2t First Example: Defining a function parametrically**

Consider the set of all ordered pairs (x, y) defined by the equations 2 x = t y = t + 2t where t is any real number. 2. Find an algebraic relationship between x and y. Is y a function of x? Substitute!!! This is a function!!!

13
**x = t + 1 y = t + 2t First Example: Defining a function parametrically**

Consider the set of all ordered pairs (x, y) defined by the equations 2 x = t y = t + 2t where t is any real number. 3. Graph the relation in the (x, y) plane. We can plot our original points, or just graph the function we found in step 2!!!

14
**x = t + 2t y = t + 1 More Practice: Using the Graphulator?!?! NO!!!**

Consider the set of all ordered pairs (x, y) defined by the equations 2 x = t + 2t y = t + 1 where t is any real number. 1. Use a calculator to find the points determined by t = –3, –2, –1, 0, 1, 2, and 3. 2. Use a calculator to graph the relation in the (x, y) plane. NO!!! 3. Is y a function of x? 4. Find an algebraic relationship between x and y. 2 x = y – 1

16

OK

We can define both elements of the ordered pair, (x, y), in terms of another variable, t, called a parameter. Example: Given and, a) Find the points.
