To find the polar coordinates of a point given its rectangular coordinates ((-2, 2)), you can use the formulas:

(r = \sqrt{x^2 + y^2})

(θ = \arctan{\left(\frac{y}{x}\right)})

Substitute (x = -2) and (y = 2) into these formulas:

(r = \sqrt{(-2)^2 + 2^2} = \sqrt{4 + 4} = \sqrt{8} = 2\sqrt{2})

(θ = \arctan{\left(\frac{2}{-2}\right)} = \arctan{(-1)})

Since (y) is positive and (x) is negative, (θ = \arctan{(-1)} = -\frac{\pi}{4}) (in radians) or (θ = 135^\circ) (in degrees).

Therefore, the polar coordinates of the point ((-2, 2)) are ((2\sqrt{2}, -\frac{\pi}{4})) in radians or ((2\sqrt{2}, 135^\circ)) in degrees.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
