Maple ODE plot, implicit
Posted:

I have two parametric equations, one for x(t), one for y(t). Both are ODEs of order 1. Both are implicit. There is no way to solve explicitly for dx/dt or dy/dt. How can I get Maple to do a plot of the solution?
I tried DEplot but apparently it demands an explicit presentation of dx/dt and dy/dt. I have Maple12 on a Mac, but could use Maple15 on a server.
The equation for dx/dt involves only dx/dt, x, and t. Similarly for dy/dt.
