    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!

    Re: Finding other Polar Coordinates

    all of these give the same polar coordinates ...

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

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

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

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