I am having trouble solving polar equations.
1. r= 1-sin theta
2. r=3+2sin theta
how would i go about solving these so that i would be able to graph them ?

I don't understand what you mean by "solving" these. Are you maybe wanting to switch these to rectangular coordinates? If so, then there are some common methods for this. Try (here) or (here). Please write back if you get stuck. Thanks!
