# Gen equivalent vector representation in Grapher/algebra ("Oh the shame!")

[Begin Shame] I'm trying to understand vector components via equations (gasp!.. I know, I know "equations are mathematical crutches!" and I risk being shunned by the cult..but I'm so old I've forgotten most algebra, so please humor me). Is the Red box represented correctly by this equation in grapher? If not what would be the correct representation in grapher? What would be the component equation for the cosine term? [Blue region.] Also what happens when swiz x and Param Time both get multiplied by 3...is that an f(x,t) thing? Is there a limit to how many parameters can be attached to a multiplier? See attached image. You don't have to show a grapher image, any image with a (ghastly) equation will due. [Tangentally and most offensively, why are equations so ardently ignored in this cult..I'm talking to you Federico..maybe even Sam..as a youth were you given an equation swirly by Gottfried Leibniz's great great great once removed second nephew, and only escaped via a tangled morass of spaghetti? We of the cult, wonder..sometimes. [EOS]] *Feel free to include the full Vector equation for out 1. [Red should be 8 not 18 -Thanks Luvlongtime/FMJ.]
