How would you simplify this polar equation to r=?
2=rcos(theta20)
Would i divide the 2 by both sides?

yes.

Then how would i bring the r out?

Multiply R by both sides so that u have r equals the rest of the equation

r=2/cos(theta20) the equation of a line

why wouldnt it be cos(theta20)/2?

We divide both sides by cos(theta20)
