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.

my polar equation would be
2rcosØ + rsinØ = 5
r(2cosØ + sinØ) = 5
r = 5/(2cosØ + sinØ)

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 …

Another: theta is a second quadrant angle in standard position and tan theta =  (sqrt5)/(2) . Find the exact value of cos theta. I assume I use the equation 1 / cos(theta)^2 = 1 + tan (theta)^2 However how does this work out algebraically?
