Min and Max Polar Graphs
can someone explain what this question means
r=5 sin (2^)

options
a. maximum calculate r occurs when sin(2^)=1
b. " " sin(2^)=-1
c. minimum sin(2^)=0
d. minimum sin(2^)=-1

first of all, what is the question?

what does the lone caret (^) symbolize?

is this the entire question as written, or have you left out other info/details?

.If that's all which is mentioned(Thinking) than

maximum r occurs at sin(2^) = 1 because its the maximum value of sine function

minimum r occurs at sin(2^) = -1 because its the minimum value of sine function
