3. The rectangular coordinates of a point are given. Find the polar coordinates of each point.

b. (0,3)

I figured out a, but I canNOT figure out b. Can someone please explain? :)I need to know how to do this for my final next week.

as usual,

r^2 = x^2+y^2

r%2 = 9

r=3

y/r = sinθ

3/3 = sinθ

θ = π/2

so, we get (3,π/2)

y/r!! That makes much more sense! Someone else had told me y/x, so that's why it didn't work. Thanks!
