# Intersection points of the graph its solutions?

#### yourmom98

The graphs of f(theta) = 2sin(theta) - 1 , and g(theta) = 3cos(theta)+2 are given.
What equation would have the intersection points of the graph its solutions?

ummm..... what does this mean? and how do i solve it?

Find the intersection points of f(t) and g(t) and find a function that has those points as solutions (zeros).

#### yourmom98

i still dont understand i can find the points where f(t) and g(t) intersect by graphing (how do i do this by graphing?) but what do you mean by having same points as zeros?

#### Dr.Brain

Both of these are the equations of graphs in their polar form.These graph would intersect at some particular point whose position vector will make some THETA angle with the x-axis.To find this particular THETA , solve the above two equations simultaneusly by equation f(Q) and g(Q) and then finding the angle(s).
