Convert the polar equation:

r = [itex]\frac{2}{ 2\,\sin \left( \theta

\right) -3\,\cos \left( \theta \right)}

[/itex]

to rectangular form

2. Relevant equations

x^2 + y^2 = r^2

x = r * cos(theta)

y = r * sin(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to to use the x = r cos(theta) technique but had issues simiplifying. Then I tried to x^2+y^2 = r^2 but couldn't complete the square or do anything useful with the r.
