write the polar eqaution

3 = r cos (theta - 315)

in rectangular form.

3=r cos(a-315)

where theta=a

now 315=360-45=2pi-pi/4=-pi/4

therefore, -315=+pi/4

therefore,3=r cos(a-315)becomes

3=r cos(a+pi/4)

but cos(a+pi/4)= cosa*cospi/4 - sina*sinpi/4

3=r cos(a+pi/4)

but cos(a+pi/4)= cosa*cospi/4 - sina*sinpi/4

= 1/root2(cosa-sina)

3= 1/root2(rcosa-rsina)

= 1/root2 (x-y)

3root2=x-y

y = x-3root2 is an equation of line
