(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

r^2= 2cos^2 θ+3sin^2θ

2. Relevant equations

X= r cosθ

y= r sinθ

3. The attempt at a solution

√r=√2cos^2 θ+3sin^2θ

r = 2 cos θ+ 3 sin θ

r = 2x + 2 y.

I doubt that i even got close to the correct answer so I like to ask anyone who knows how to deal with this type of equation, Did I make the right moves ( steps ) or did messed it all up ?and if i did, will you please help ( guide ) me to the right way to correct way of doing these type of equations. thanks in advance.
