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.

tan Q = 5/3 = -1.12
tan Q = 5/3, but 5/3 is not equal to -1.12
tan-1 -1.12 = -0.84
Q = -0.84
Q = -pi + -0.84 = -3.981
