1. Which of the following statements are true?
(i) r = 4 – 3 sin θ is the equation for a limaçon rotated 90°.
(ii) r = 3 cos 8θ is the equation for a rose curve with 8 petals.
(iii) rθ = 16 is the equation for a circle.
A. (i) and (iii)
B. (i) only
C. (ii) only
D. (i) and (ii)
2) How many petals do the two rose curves r = 9 cos 61θ and r = 8 sin 60θ have combined?
18. What is true of the curve r = ƒ(θ) if its shape is unaffected when r is replaced by –r and θ is replaced by p – θ?
A. It's symmetric with respect to the x-axis.
B. It's symmetric with respect to the origin.
C. It's symmetric with respect to the line y = x.
D. It's symmetric with respect to the y-axis.
you should be able to figure these out with a visit to wolframalpha.com
plot r = 4 – 3 sin θ
to see that (i) is true
