# How do you convert r = 5 csctheta into cartesian form?

Dec 1, 2016

tHe equation is $y = 5$

#### Explanation:

To convert from polar coordinates $\left(r , \theta\right)$ to cartesian coordinates, we use the following equations

$x = r \cos \theta$

$y = r \sin \theta$

Our equation is

$r = 5 \csc \theta$

$r = \frac{5}{\sin} \theta$

$r \sin \theta = 5$

So, $y = 5$
