**Reiny**, Friday, February 28, 2014 at 9:19pmwe know x =rcosŲ and y = rsinŲ

-3rcosŲ + (1/2)rsinŲ = 2

-6rcosŲ + rsinŲ = 2

r(sinŲ - 6cosŲ) = 2

or

r = 2/(sinŲ - 6cosŲ)

looks good:

**Steve**, Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 6:20amReiny 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
