Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I know, but I want an equation that is just for this piece of quadrant and not for entire circle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well you can say x^2+y^2=a^2 where x>0 and y>0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example for a semicircle lying in the upper half we can write \[y=\sqrt{a^2x^2}\] Can't we do something similar for a quadrant?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or you can solve for y y^2=a^2x^2 y=sqrt(a^2x^2) is the top part of the circle so you can say y=sqrt(a^2x^2) where x>0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope that is all I got you can do half of a circle or full circle and then make restrictions on the circle or half circle
