## Question:

Convert the rectangular equation to polar form. Assume {eq}a < 0 {/eq}.

{eq}x^2 + y^2 - 8y = 0 {/eq}

## Coordinate Systems:

The coordinate system tells which would be the corresponding components in the expression of a vector or a point in a certain space. For rectangular coordinate systems, we can express a vector or a point in terms of the *x*- and *y*-components.
