Short Answer

Graphs of Polar Equations Match the polar equation with the graphs labeled I-VI. Use the table on page 519 to help you.


The graph of the curve in its polar form with r=1+2cosθ is the 4th graph.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1.Given information.

A polar equation r=1+2cosθ

Step 2. The correct plot of the equation.

We have a curve in its polar form withr=1+2cosθ .

We use this to determine the coordinates of the points on the curve by plugging in different values of θ . So,

Plotting these points on the coordinate plane we see that the graph of the curve is,

So this curve has a graph that matches with the4th graph.
