Unformatted text preview: hese representations by substituting the values for θ into r = 6 cos(2θ), once again, for illustration purposes. (We feel most students would take this approach.) Again, in the interests of efficiency, we could ‘plug’ π π π these values for θ into r = 3 (where there is no θ) and get the list of points: 3, π , 3, 23 , 3, 43 and 3, 53 . 3 While it is not true that 3, π represents the same point as −3, π , we still get the same set of solutions. 3 3 16 A quick sketch of r = 3 sin θ and r = 3 cos θ in the θr-plane will convince you that, viewed as functions of r, 2 2 these are two different animals. 15 11.5 Graphs of Polar Equations 813 √ get only one intersection point which can be represented by 3 2 2 , π . We now investigate 2 other representations for the intersection points. Suppose P is an intersection point with θ a representation (r, θ) which satisfies r = 3 sin 2 and the same point P has a different θ representation (r, θ + 2πk ) for some integer k which satisfies r = 3 cos 2 . Substituting θ into the latter, we get r = 3 cos...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
