Write Parametric equations of 3x+1/2y=2

PreCalculus  Reiny, Friday, February 28, 2014 at 9:19pm
we know x =rcosØ and y = rsinØ
3rcosØ + (1/2)rsinØ = 2
6rcosØ + rsinØ = 2
r(sinØ  6cosØ) = 2
or
r = 2/(sinØ  6cosØ)
looks good:

Reiny gave you good polar coordinates, but if all you want is parametric equations, try
x = t/3
y = 1 + t/2
or
x = (2+t)/3
y = 2t
