# polar coordinates watch

1. l and m are points with polar coordinates (5, 1/3 pi) and (10, 1/3 pi) respectively. LMN is an equilateral triangle. Find the polar coordinates of the two possible positions of n.

I only just started polar coordinates and don't know how to do this could someone help please

thanks

Draw a diagram if you haven't already. Make it reasonably accurate, and work geometrically. You'll see some nice angles, isosceles triangles, etc.
