I have $x=t^2-3$ and $y=t+2$. I keep trying Eliminate and the output is always True. I just need to take these two curves and convert it to a Cartesian equation. Every help thing I've searched for has not worked.


I am not sure if this is what you meant or not. Too small to put in comment.

ClearAll[x, y, t]
eq1 = x == t^2 - 3;
eq2 = y == t + 2;
Eliminate[{eq1, eq2}, t]
