Another way to compare the interaction of the two populations is to eliminate the time variable from the graphs. In other words, to make a graph of foxes versus rabbits. Such a plot can be made if we plot the graph parametrically. (You may remember learning about parametric equations back in College Algebra or Calculus.)

Go ask Mathematica for the syntax of ParametricPlot.

Now let's go see what you should have gotten...
