**16.** Make a plot of a unit circle, i.e. a curve that satisfies $x^2 + y^2 = 1$. Draw the circle with a thick red line, label the axes, and give the plot a title. Make sure the circle looks like a circle and not an oval. Hint: don't try to draw the plot using the equation $x^2 + y^2 = 1$. Instead parameterize the curve in terms of the angle $\theta$, i.e. calculate $x$ and $y$ from $\theta$. | **16.** Make a plot of a unit circle, i.e. a curve that satisfies $x^2 + y^2 = 1$.
