# Thread: Converting Polar equations to cartesian

1. ## Converting Polar equations to cartesian

I have a project in my trig class and I wanted to use r = cos(12theta), but my teacher told me that I wasn't allowed because it was too complicated to convert. I want to understand how I can convert this, Can someone please hep me?

Thanks
