#### Explanation:

(Assuming that the equation you meant is

When converting from polar to rectangular, it's important to know that:

#x=rcostheta# #y=rsintheta#

The equation can be rewritten using

#r=4csctheta" "=>" "r=4/sintheta" "=>" "rsintheta=4#

With the identity from before:

#y=4#

which is a horizontal line.
