In this problem, we are given a linear curve and we want to represent this line by a vector-valued function. There are many ways to solve this problem but the most used one is to let $x=t$.

Now, we must also remember that a vector-valued function can be written in the form

$\textbf{r}(t)=f(t)\textbf{i}+g(t) \textbf{j},$

where we can also express this into parametric equations such that

$x=f(t)$

and

$y=g(t).$
