I am stuck on trying to convert this. I am stuck since I can find any values for theta or phi.

$y=\rho \sin \theta \sin \varphi$ $z=\rho \cos \theta$ Plugging in: $\rho=\tan^{1/5} \theta \sec \theta \sin^{1/5} \varphi$
confused. isn't z=pcos(phi)? But , i got the answer by switching the the theta and phi. Thanks though!

Just making sure! I had to google cause im still unfamiliar with the coordinate system. Thank you !
