This is an example problem that I can't understand how the answer came out to be this way:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Q: Sketch the polar curve [tex]\Theta[/tex] = 1.

A: A picture of a line that goes diagonal with points that go (1, 1) (2, 1) (3, 1) etc.

I do understand that if the angle is 1, then the line is such that it's 1 radian above the polar axis. What I do NOT understand is how the points come out to be that way. Are those arbitrary numbers, or can I give random numbers? Supposing there was another question like that had a value of 3 instead of 1 for angle, would the points be (1, 3) (2, 3) etc?
