## Question:

Find a polar equation for the curve represented by the given Cartesian equation. {eq}x^2+ y^2 = 4cx {/eq}

## Polar Coordinates

There are numerous ways of representing a point on a plane, namely the Cartesian Coordinates, the polar coordinates, the spherical coordinates and the cylindrical coordinates.

Each of the coordinates are inter-convertible and have their own benefits and complexities.
