## Main Question or Discussion Point

How will you graph θ=π/4?

In polar coordinates you can graph an equation like, r=a(1-sinθ) which gives a cardioid graph.

But when my teacher giving me a class of

But as we know that in polar coordinates (r,θ).

so in θ=π/4, there is no "r", so how we can graph it?

I think there must be some "r" which could make angle with +x-axis, if we take "r=0" then how could you make inclination with x-axis by π/4?

How will do this???
