Question

Why rectangular coordinates are better than polar.

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    Rectangular coordinates, or cartesian coordinates, come in the form (x,y).. Polar coordinates, on the other hand, come in the form (r,θ). Instead of moving out from the origin using horizontal and vertical lines, we instead pick the angle θ, which is the direction, and then move out from the origin a certain distance r.
