To find two different sets of parametric equations for the given rectangular equation ( y = \frac{1}{x} ), we can express ( x ) and ( y ) in terms of a parameter ( t ).

One approach is to let ( x = t ) and ( y = \frac{1}{t} ). Another approach is to let ( x = \frac{1}{t} ) and ( y = t ).

Therefore, the two sets of parametric equations are:

- ( x = t ) and ( y = \frac{1}{t} )
- ( x = \frac{1}{t} ) and ( y = t )

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
