Plot the Following points(given in polar coordinates). Find all the polar coordinates of each point.

a. (2, pi/2)

b. (2,0)

c. (-2, pi/2)

d. (-2,0)

2. Relevant equations

none

3. The attempt at a solution

I have plotted it on a graph but could someone explain to me how this answer is correct for a.?

(2, pi/2 + 2npi) and (-2, pi/2 + (2n+ 1)pi)

wherenis any integer.

So what I have is there is a point on the positive x-axis on 2. An angle pi/2 since r=2 and theta = pi/2.

The ray passes down from the positive y-axis to the negative y-axis. So the angle from the initial ray to the end of the ray on the negative y-axis is 3pi/2.

*Sorry I didn't use Latex, I figured it out after finishing typing out the question.
