Hi,

The main question revolves around the Rhodonea curve AKA rose curve. The polar equation given for the curve is r=cos(k). The parametric equation is = cos(k(theta)) cos (theta), = cos(k(theta)) sin(theta) . Can anyone show me the conversion from the general parametric form to the general polar form. Basically what I am looking for is the working. How did the parametric form get converted to polar?

P.S. In the case that the aforementioned doesnt happen, even if you are able to find the general rectangular coordinate form for the given polar equation above, it will work for me

Thanks!
