(a) The parametric equations for a line passing through \((x_{0},\ y_{0},\ z_{0})\) and parallel to the vector \(v = ai\ +\ bj\ +\ ck\) are \(x = x_{0}\ +\ at,\ y = y_{0}\ +\ bt,\ z = z_{0}\ +\ ct\) The required parametric equations are \(x =\ −1\ +\ 3t,\ y = 4t,\ z = 8\ −\ 8t\) (b) The parametric equations are \(x =\ −1\ +\ 3t,\ y = 4t,\ z = 8\ −\ 8t\) Solving for t we have, \(\Rightarrow\ t=\ \frac{x\ +\ 1}{3},\ t=\ \frac{y}{4},\ t=\ \frac{z\ -\ 8}{-8}\)
\(\Rightarrow\ \frac{x\ +\ 1}{3}=\ \frac{y}{4}=\ \frac{z\ -\ 8}{-8}\)
\(\Rightarrow\ \frac{x\ +\ 1}{3}=\ \frac{y}{4}=\ \frac{8\ -\ z}{8}\) Symmetric equations \(\frac{x\ +\ 1}{3}=\frac{y}{4}=\frac{8\ -\ z}{8}\)

1. A curve is given by the following parametric equations. x = 20 cost, y = 10 sint. The parametric equations are used to represent the location of a car going around the racetrack. a) What is the cartesian equation that represents the race track the car is traveling on? b) What parametric equations would we use to make the car go 3 times faster on the same track? c) What parametric equations would we use to make the car go half as fast on the same track? d) What parametric equations and restrictions on t would we use to make the car go clockwise (reverse direction) and only half-way around on an interval of [0, 2?]? e) Convert the cartesian equation you found in part “a” into a polar equation? Plug it into Desmos to check your work. You must solve for “r”, so “r = ?”
