Best answer

If you are looking for other polar names for this point, here are some:

1. (6, -329 deg) (-6, 211 deg) (-6, -149 deg)

2. (5, -5pi/3) (-5, 4pi/3) (-5,-2pi/3)

Notice that we have the following signs : (+,+),(+,-),(-,+),(-,-).

If we consider angles beyond 360 deg or 2pi, many other names for these points can be determined.

The coordinates given are already polar, with the first number giving the modulus & the next one the angle (31° is in degrees and pi/3 is in Radians).

To convert these to rectangular coordinates

x = (Modulus)(cos /_angle),

y = (Modulus)(cos /_angle).

I think this is the correct answer for Find all polar coordinates of point P = (6, 31°)?
