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.

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.

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 -1.12write in polar form ...elc

-3 - 5i

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