Polar form

Given an equation sq root 3/xy = 2/ x^2-y^2
(a) Change the equation to polar form and simplify the answer by using funda- mental identities.
(b) Solve the trigonometric equation (for θ, 0 ≤ θ ≤ 2π) that you obtained in (a).

note ...

$x=r\cos{\theta}$

$y=r\sin{\theta}$

your turn ... show what you can do

I appreciate all your help so far. As you can tell trig isn't my strongest subject but if there's any other questions I can answer for you I'd try my best

If that's the case, then I'd recommend you seriously reconsider attempting a course of study in calculus without the proper trig background. Believe me when I tell you that an insufficient knowledge of trig leads to failure more often than not.

Try taking a pure trig course or a precalculus course that incorporates trig in its curriculum, then go do the calculus.
