    Have you an idea about Cartesian coordinate system?

    Cartesian coordinate system is the normal (x,y) system... where you show the position of a point using rectangular coordinates. Likewise, any point in a plane can be shown through an angle from a fixed axis and a length from a fixed origin... Look @ this and you may be get an idea of polar coordinate system....|dw:1433473280875:dw|

    Is it \[(5,30°) or (5,\pi/6) \]

    What do I do for the(−3,2π/3) coordinate where would I put that.

    Whoops I put it on the wrong line I meant the 300 degree line.
