FUN STUFF: Describe the motion of a particle?? help! (calc)?

Describe the motion of a particle with position (x, y) as t varies in the given interval.

x = cos^2(t), y = cos t, 0<= t<= 4 and its fill in the blank: The particle moves along the parabola x = y2. As t goes from 0 to 4, the particle moves from ( , ) down to ( , ) (at t = ), back up to ( , ) again (at t = 2), and then repeats this entire cycle between t = 2 and t = 4. s I know you just make a chart, pluging in values of t. But for example, how do you solve x=cos^2(0)?? without calculator, or even with calculator?
