What is the distance between the following polar coordinates?: # (3,(17pi)/12), (5,(7pi)/8) #
#cos 17pi/12 = cos 255=-0.2588
#sin 17pi/12= sin 255 =-0.9659
In cartesean coordinates the first point would be
Second point would be
Apply distance formula to get the distance= 6.15549.
Less laborious method would be
