Yikes, need to find the area and the name for these parametric equations:
x(t) = a cos(t) (2 cos(2 t)+1)
y(t) = a sin(t) (2 cos(2 t)+1)
What is...? I don't even...? How? I'll draw the graph....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can see a graph of this using wolfram, e.g.: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=plot+%7Bx%3Da*cos%28t%29%282cos%282t%29%2B1%29%2C+y%3Da*sin%28t%29%282cos%282t%29%2B1%29%7D+when+a%3D3 your graph is correct :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We just touched on polar stuff today, this question was from the "challenge" section of the written homework. The other curves have names that we discussed in the lecture like "carotid", "ellipse", and "circle" which are kind of obvious which is which.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It just asks me to type in the "area" in the one text field. Which was correct yay! And then it has a text box under it for "name of curve". The others were easy, but this one I haven't got a clue. Maybe it's in the text, somewhere amidst all its pages but it's not easy to find.
