From Example 11.5.2 number 2, we know that the graph of r = 2 + 4 cos(θ) is a lima¸on c π π whose ‘inner loop’ is traced out as θ runs through the given values 23 to 43 . Since the values r takes on in this interval are non-positive, the inequality 2 + 4 cos(θ) ≤ r ≤ 0 makes sense, and we are looking for all of the points between the pole r = 0 and the lima¸on as θ ranges c ππ over the interval 23 , 43 . In other words, we shade in the inner loop of the lima¸on. c r y 6 4 θ= 2π 3 2 x 2π 3 π 2 4π 3 π 3π 2 2π θ= θ 4π 3 −2 π (r, θ) : 2 + 4 cos(θ) ≤ r ≤ 0, 23 ≤ θ ≤ 4π 3 4. We have two regions described here connected with the union symbol ‘∪.’ We shade each in turn and find our final answer by combining the two. In Example 11.5.3, number 1, we found that the curves r = 2 sin(...

    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.
