# Matching In Exercises 7-12, match the polar equation with its correct graph. [The graphs are labeled (a), (b), (c), (d>, (e), and f).] r = 6 1 − cos θ

To determine

Match the given polar equation with its correct graph from the options given.

Explanation

Given: Given options for graphs are labelled as (a), (b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) are shown below:

Calculation: The given equation is r=61âˆ’cosÎ¸

Here e=1, so the graph of the equation is a parabola. The form of the given equation concludes that the directrix is vertical and is at the left of the pole.

Since d=6, the directrix line is x=âˆ’6
