Problem:
Graph the curve represented by the following equation in polar coordinates:


Visualization:
Using Derive:

  1. Prepare the program for graphics.
  2. If the first menu item is Algebra then press .
  3. Press for Author.
  4. Enter the function
    3sin(9 )
  5. Press to get the plot window.

    Now we need to prepare Derive to graph in polar coordinates.

  6. Press to enter the options menu.
  7. Now press to enter the state menu.
  8. Finally, press and then to tell Derive to graph using continuous polar coordinates.
    Note: Derive will continue to graph in polar coordinates for the remainder of the session or until the state is chaged back to rectangular.


  9. Now press and then to see the graph.
