Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wherever you se an "x", make it "r cos(t)" wherever you see a "y"; make it "r sin(t)"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(rcos(t)^2+rsin(t)^2)^3= 4rcos(t)^2 sin(t)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos^2 + sin^2 = 1 therefore: [r(1)]^3 = r^3 r^3= 4(rcos(t))^2 (rsin(t))^2 divide thru by r^2 r = 4cos(t)sin(t)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0minus the typos of courser r = 4 cos(t)^2 sin(t)^2 r = [2cos(t)sin(t)]^2 r = (sin(2t))^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think you are missing r^2 a few steps up... i.e.\[(x^2+y^2)^3\]is \[\left((r\cos t)^2+(r\sin t)^2\right)^3\]=\[(r^2\cos^2t+r^2\sin^2t)^3\]=\[(r^2(\cos^2t+\sin^2t))^3\]=\[r^6\]
