A problem in polar i want check my answer

  1. Apr 19, 2010 #1
    write in polar form ...elc
    -3 - 5i

    my answer :

    x = -3 y = - 5

    r = root (-3)^2 + (-5)^2
    = 5.83

    tan Q = 5/3 = -1.12
    tan-1 -1.12 = -0.84
    Q = -0.84
    Q = -pi + -0.84 = -3.981

    Polar form = 5.83e^(-3.981)i

    Ok first off:
    I believe you've recorded your answer in exponential form.

    Forms of Complex Numbers:

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I think your angle may be wrong as well. This is what I did:

    I can explain why I added 180 degrees to the angle I calculated - if needed.

    Hi

    but as I know in this question we change calculator to ( Rad ) nor (deg) because we have integer number -3 and - 5 not roots or ,

    and please I want explaine more because I don't understand clearly

    tan Q = 5/3, but 5/3 is not equal to -1.12
