Which rectangular equation corresponds to these parametric equations?
x = 0.2sec t and y = -0.25tan t

A) 25x^2 − 16y^2 = 1
B) 25x^2 + 16y^2 = 1
C) x^2 − 16y^2 = 25
D) 25y^2 − 16x^2 = 1
E) 4x^2 − 16x^2 = 1

    since sec^2 = 1+tan^2,

    (x/.2)^2 = (y/-.25)^2 + 1
    25x^2 - 16y^2 = 1

    Looks like A to me

    what di di do wrong in this??? the question is: x-8y=18 -16x+16y=-8 i did : first multiplied the first equation with 2 then 2x-16y=36 -16+16y=-8 ----------- -14x=28 x=28/-14 x=-2 now x-8y=18 (-2)-8y=18 -8y=18+2 -8y=20 y=20/-8 y= 2.5
