Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cosine is the only even function ( a mirrored symmetry) while tangent and sine are odd functions (symmetry at the origin)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first we need to graph this... you may need to let theta = pi/2, pi , 3pi/2 , 2pi , pi/4, pi/3, pi/6 to figure out your r and graph it (r, theta)
