A bug is on one wall of a room. The lower left-hand corner of the wall is selected as the origin of a two-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. The bug is located at the point having coordinates (1.8, .8) m

How far is it from the corner of the room?

What is it's location in polar coordinates?

r=?????

theta=????

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Aren't these two question asking for the same thing? I need to use the pythagorean theorem right?

Thank you very much
