    You need to use these equations: \[r^2=x^2+y^2 ; rcos(\theta)=x ; rsin(\theta)=y \]

    i did, but like it ended up like x^2+y^2= 25+9x^2r^2-30xr/64y^2 for the last one

    We want the equations just in terms of x and y instead of r and theta.

    so the last one is: \[r=\frac{5}{3}\cos(\theta)+8\sin(\theta) \]?

    \[r= \frac{5}{3\cos(\theta)+8\sin(\theta)}\] Multiply both sides by that one fraction's denominator

    3xr+8ry=5 but then you'll need to put r on one side cause you would need to square it. and the answer comes out all weird

    well rcos(theta) is x not just cos(theta same thing with the y deal rsin(theta) is y not just sin(theta)

    Notice this only has a cos in it... how do you get cos with the r over there so you can use the equation rcos(theta)=x

    Plug in values of theta and see what the r output is

    then remember how you graph using polar coordinates r is the distance from the origin and direction is given by r to from the angle theta is the angle

    So for example if I plug in theta=0 \[r=2 \cos (3 \cdot 0)=2\cos(0)=2(1)=2 => \text{ graph the point } (2,0^o)\] |dw:1388269865874:dw|
