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

yes.

Then how would i bring the r out?

Precalc  Deez, Sunday, August 21, 2011 at 5:19pm
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, Sunday, August 21, 2011 at 5:56pm
why wouldnt it be cos(theta20)/2?

Precalc  Anonymous, Sunday, August 21, 2011 at 6:50pm
We divide both sides by cos(theta20)

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