Give the pairs of polar coordinates for the point (-6,0) I understand how to get the polar coordinate,I just don't understand how you would get two coordinates..? Thank you!

One point can have many polar coordinates. I get (6,180) & (6,0). You get the other coordinate by rotating theta 180 degrees.
So then you would get -180? Thanks

Ooh okay I get it now.thank you!
