Just a quick question. If i have sin squared of theta and theta is in a right triangle with sides 7(opposite side), 24(adjacent side), and hypotenuse of 25 does that mean that
sin squared of theta is just (7/25)squared?

If you describe it that way then yes

I wanted to confirm that I solved these problems correctly (we had to convert the polar curves to Cartesian equations). 1.rcos(theta)=1 x=1 2.r=2*sin(theta)+2*cos(theta) r^2=2rsin(theta)+2rcos(theta) x^2+y^2=2y+2x (a little unsure …
