Find a polar equation for the curve represented by the given Cartesian equation.17. x + y = 2

To determine

To find: The polar equation of the curve represented by the Cartesian equation x+y=2.

Explanation

The Cartesian equation for the variable x and y is as follows.

x+y=2 (1)

Substitute rcosθ for x and rsinθ for y in equation (1),

rcosθ+rsinθ=2r(cosθ
