    r is the the directed distance from the origin and theta is angle starting from the initial ray

    how do i find the direction and the theta?

    plug in values for thetha to see what r would be for each thetha

    just like you would do to f(x)=2 plug in values for x to see what y would be

    which we know is a horizontal line because y doesn't change no matter x we put in

    loco polar coordinates should be easy. why are you making it so difficult lol

    the most inner circle on that graph is radius 1 the second most inner circle is radius 2

    it really helps if you know the unit cirlce do you know the unit circle in fact you cant do this without the unit circle
