I need helpI do not understand.
The question is this: Write 2x+y=5 in polar form.
By following the example in the book I get: 5sqrt5/5=1/sqrt5*sqrt5/2. I do not know how to proceed but the answers I have to choose from are:
a) sqrt5=r cos(theta27 degrees)
b) sqrt5=rcos(theta27 degrees)
c) sqrt5=r cos(theta+27 degrees)
d)sqrt5=r cos(theta+27 degrees)
Could you please show me how to solve this problem?
Thanks

Express 52i in polar form. Express your answer in radians to the nearest hundreth. r=sqrt5^2+2i^2 which equals sqrt21.Arctan of 2/5+pi equals 18.7 Polar form=sqrt21 cis 18.7 Is this correct?

I need to express log base 5 sqrt5 =0.5 in exponential form. Would it be 5^0.5 =sqrt5. I'm not really understanding this unit very well. Any explaination would be greatly appreciated.

PLEASE write 2x+y=5 in polar form. a. sqrt5 = r cos (theta 27degrees) b. sqrt5 = r cos (theta 27degrees) c. sqrt5 = r cos (theta +27degrees) d. sqrt5 = r cos (theta +27degrees) is the answer c.
