Find the polar coordinates of (-4,0) A. (0,0 degrees) B. (0,180 degrees) C. (4,180 degrees) D. None of the above
@klimenkov Please don't give out answers without explaining. He would not be able to solve future questions like this without an explanation. To convert a Cartesian coordinate pair to a polar one (in the format \((r, \theta)\)), use this set of formula: r = \(\sqrt{x^2 + y^2}\) \(\theta = tan^{-1} (y/x)\).
Also, remember that the tangent value may be negative. In this case, apply the four quadrant rule on the final answer.
I don't think he wants to see how to solve this. Just want an answer.
@klimenkov OpenStudy's Code of Conduct states that you should not give out answers without explanations. :)
I hope you will be satisfied now. |dw:1358014518027:dw|
