# Thread: [SOLVED] Cartesian to Polar Equations

1. ## [SOLVED] Cartesian to Polar Equations

replace the cartesian equations iby equivalent polar equations. (a = alpha)

x-y=3

so:

rcosa - rsina = 3

r(cosa-sina)=3

can this be the answeR?? to me it seems like i m missing something.

$\Rightarrow r = \frac{3}{\cos \alpha - \sin \alpha}$.
