  3. For problems one and two, did you produce a formula that allows for quick conversions? If so, prove that it works. If not, see if you can.
  4. A ship is located at the point (10, 9) on a Cartesian plane map. The ship’s radar (with the ship at the origin) shows an incoming vessel at (7, 3π/4). What the are the Cartesian coordinates of this incoming vessel on the map?
