# Converting Polar Equations to Cartesian Equations

posted by .

If theta= pi/3 , then to convert to a Cartesian equation, let x =

A.(1/2)r
B.(square root of2/2)r
C.(square root of 3/2)r

• Converting Polar Equations to Cartesian Equations -

x=r cos(θ)
=r cos(π/3)
=r cos(π/3*180/π)
=r cos(60°)
I'll let you complete with the calculator.
