    I converted to rectangular, but once I got the answer, forgot how to convert back to polar once I got the rectangular answer. Think I'm having problem w/calc:

    2.598 + 1.5
    - 0 + 3
    _____________
    2.598 - 1.5 ====> What is the polar conversion?

    R = SQRT(x^2 + y^2)
    θ = arctan(y/x)
