The rectangular coordinates of the point (4,π6) are.(23,2).

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1.Given information.

The polar coordinates of the point are(4,π6) .

Step 2. We can find the rectangular coordinates of the point using the polar to rectangular coordinates conversion formulas.

Since the polar coordinates are (4,π6) , we can say that r=4 and


Now, to find the value of y,
