Determine the maximum and minimum values of the curvature at points of the polar curve r = 3 + sin q.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that the polar curve, r = 3 + sin q is sort of similar to an upside down heart when graphed. However, I am not sure what to do when finding the maximum and minimum values of the curvature at points of r = 3 + sin q.

Thanks in advance.
