How would you simplify this polar equation to r=?
2=rcos(theta20)
Would i divide the 2 by both sides?

bobpursley,
yes.

Sara,
Then how would i bring the r out?

Precalc 
Deez,
Multiply R by both sides so that u have r equals the rest of the equation

r=2/cos(theta20) the equation of a line

Precalc 
Sara,
why wouldnt it be cos(theta20)/2?

Precalc 
Anonymous,
We divide both sides by cos(theta20)

Sara,
ohhhh wooow why didn't i think of it that way haha thanks!
