Eyyy! So recall that when converting from cartesian to polar we use these, ya?$\Large\rm x=r \cos \theta, \qquad\qquad y=r \sin \theta$

So the first step is pretty straight forward, ya?$\Large\rm x=4$$\Large\rm r \cos \theta=4$

If we're able to, we would like to write this in a way that shows that r is a function of theta. So what can we do to solve for r. What do you think Mikeyyyyy? :)
