# How do you graph #r=(23)/(7-5sin theta)#?

##### 1 Answer

See Socratic graph and explanation.

#### Explanation:

Use

with a focus at the pole (0, 0) and major axis along

The semi major axis

This can be reorganized to the form

ellipse with a focus S(0, 0). e = 5/7,

161/24 = 6.71, nearly, and .

semi minor axis

A short Table for tracing the ellipse.

See a Socratic graph. Note that the major axis ( length 13.42 ) is

along y-axis.
