Find the rectangular coordinates for each point:
Note that for a point given in polar form `(r,theta)` the conversion to rectangular form is `(rcostheta,rsintheta)` .
(a) `(2,(3pi)/4)` ; `r=2,theta=(3pi)/4` so the rectangular form is `(2cos((3pi)/4),2sin((3pi)/4))` or `(2*(-sqrt(2))/2,2sqrt(2)/2)=(-sqrt(2),sqrt(2))`
-------------------------------------------------------------------
`(2,(3pi)/4)` in polar form is equivalent to `(-sqrt(2),sqrt(2))` in rectangular form.

As a quick check, note that...
