Convert the polar equation {eq}\displaystyle r=\frac{1}{\cos \theta -\sin \theta } {/eq} to an equation in rectangular coordinates.

Converting From Polar To Rectangular Coordinates

When converting from polar to rectangular coordinates we can use the following relations:

{eq}x=r\cos \theta\\ y=r\sin \theta {/eq} Note that we also have the following relation for reference:

{eq}x^2+y^2=r^2\ {/eq}
