    Re: Polar Coordinates

    You have given the point in polar form (r,\theta). Are you supposed to convert to rectangular coordinates?

    I really have no idea about the exact meaning of that question.

    'That said: \left( {4, - \frac{\pi }{3}} \right) \equiv \left( {4,2k\pi  - \frac{\pi }{3}} \right),~k\in\mathbb{Z}
