Start with known values and plot them.
theta = 0
sin(0) = 0
6 - 4sin(0) = 6
What other exact values of the sine function do you know?

Hello, Chevy_meg!
How would I graph: [tex]\:r \:=\: 6\,-\,4\sin\theta[/tex]
You're expected to recognize the curve . . . a "limacon".
. . In this one, the cusp does not "go into the origin".
As tkhunny suggested, plot some points.
. . [tex]\begin{array}{ccccccccc}\hline
\;\theta & | & 0 & | & \frac{\pi}{2} & | & \pi & | & \frac{3\pi}{2}\; \\ \hline
\;r & | & 6 & | & 2 & | & 6 & | & 10\; \\ \hline
\end{array}[/tex]
This gives us the orientation of the limacon.Code:* | * * * | * * * o2 * * | * | - - o - - - - - + - - - - - o - - 6* | *6 * | * | * | * * | * * | * * | * * o * |10
I'm the other of the two guys who "do" homework.
