# Thread: Finding other Polar Coordinates

1. ## Finding other Polar Coordinates

The attachment is an example of a problem that I have to do, but I don't understand how the (r, θ), applies or can apply to (a), (b), and (c).

An explanation of how to find additional polar coordinates would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Oops... It's there now

4. ## Re: Finding other Polar Coordinates

all of these give the same polar coordinates ...

$\displaystyle \left(4,\frac{5\pi}{3}\right)$

$\displaystyle \left(4,\frac{5\pi}{3} - 2\pi \right)$

$\displaystyle \left(-4,\frac{5\pi}{3} - \pi \right)$

$\displaystyle \left(4,\frac{5\pi}{3} + 2\pi \right)$
