transform the following polar equation into an equation in rectangular coordinates r=-4 sin theta. A. x=-4y B. x+y= -4 C. y= -4 D. x^2+(y+2)^2=4
You should remeber that you may convert the polar coordinates into rectangular coordinates using the following formulas such that:
`sin theta = y/r => y = r sin theta`
`cos theta = x/r => x = r cos theta`
`x^2 + y^2 = r^2`
The problem provides the information that `r = - 4 sin...
