# Program to convert polar co-ordinates to equivalent cartesian co-ordinates

• Last Updated : 22 Nov, 2021

Given two integers r and θ (in degree) representing polar coordinates of a point (r, θ), the task is to find the Cartesian coordinates of the given point.

Input: r = 1.4142, θ = 45
Output: 1.000, 1.000

Input: r = 3, θ = 30
Output: 2.598, 1.500

Approach: Let the cartesian coordinates of the point be (x, y). The polar coordinates and the Cartesian coordinates can be related using the following equations:

x = r*cosθ and y = r*sinθ Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

• Convert θ from degrees to radian as θ(in radian) = θ (in degrees) * (3.14159 / 180).
• Store the x and y coordinate in a variable X and Y respectively.
• Apply transformation formula and update the value of X = r * cosθ and Y = r * sinθ.
• Print the value of X and Y as the result.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
