I am just a man who has an insatiable desire for knowledge.

"For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]."~ Philippians 4:8

Oh, they just factored out $e^{-2t}$, and then combined the trig terms together?

I think I am beginning to understand. Just one thing, though: how did you decide which root to choose for $\pm\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}$?

comment Parametric Equations: Finding Given Tangent Lines At Points
@DanielLittlewood That would probably be more understandable, because it seems weird to use the $\theta$ value to find the slope. Wouldn't it be difficult to write $\frac{dy}{dx} in terms of y and x?

comment Parametric Equations: Finding Given Tangent Lines At Points
One of the things I am having trouble with is why you have to use both of the coordinates in the ordered-pair to find the t value, shouldn't the slope be the same? I am just having trouble justifying and making sense of each step.

It's likely that I took my derivative incorrectly; but I don't think that would help. I just can't figure out where to plug the coordinates in, and what it means to plug them in the correct function.

Yeah, I did notice that, so I figured 4 must have been added to it. But I just wanted to make sure I was processing it correctly.
