# Parametric Equations

As a particle moves, its position can often be written in terms of time. Systems like these can be modeled with parametric equations, which cleverly write coordinates in terms of a parameter.

What shape does the following parametric equation describe:

\[ x = 3 \cos ^2 \theta, y = 6 \sin^2 \theta. \]
