Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1r cos(t) =10 r = 10/cos(t)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did u get t from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well, x = r cos(t) thats just by definition

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, r cos(t) = 10 is a direct translation to polar form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you mean theta?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i dont think I did the divide right tho

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes; t = theta ... it really doesnt matter what you call it, it never comes when called

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh ok thanks i was just checking because i was confused. anyways so the answer is r=10/cos theta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1maybe, i cant remember if the divide by 0 applies to mess things up with

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not sure either its quite confusing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I know to get a straight line; which is what x=10 is; you keep the theta a constant... but id have to read up on it again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think tthe answer is right because some of my other answers ended with r=///// so it should be right hold on no the answer is r=10 sec theta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do you get secant?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1r = sec and 1/cos are the same thing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[sec = \frac{1}{cos}\]

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{10}{cos}=10 sec\]
