Polar>Cartesian \[x= rcos(\theta);y= rsin(\theta)\] r=5.05 , theta= 250 degrees \[x= rcos(\theta)\]\[=5.05cos(250)\]\[=1.727\] \[y= rsin(\theta)\]\[= 5.05sin(250)\]\[=4.745\] b.Cartesian>Polar (3x, −3y) \[r=\sqrt(x^2+y^2);\theta=\arctan(y/x)\] \[r=\sqrt(x^2+y^2)\]\[=\sqrt((3x)^2+(3y)^2)\]\[=\sqrt(9x^2+9y^2)\]\[=\sqrt(9(x^2+y^2))\]\[=3\sqrt(x^2+y^2)\] \[\theta=\arctan(3y/3x)\]\[\theta=\arctan(y/x)\] Where the x and y points supposed to be (3,3) or (3x,3y)?
