I need help-I 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(theta-27 degrees)
b) sqrt5=rcos(theta-27 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 5-2i 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?

    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.
