Absolutely lost on this: r=8cotx (x should be in degrees). I tried converting this (as well as others) but I seem to just get nowhere after I turned cot into cosx/sinx. Thanks. Edit: The equation above should be converted to rectangular form.

I think I would have done this a slightly different way: so Multiplying on both sides of the equation by r, and Now squaring both sides will give what Mr. fantastic got.
