# Polar Equations

# where a and b are not equal.

### Examples:

### Length of each leaf is equal
to 3.

###

### Length of longest leaf is equal
to 3.

###

### Length of each leaf is equal
to 6.

###

### Length of each leaf is equal
to 15.

###

### Length of each leaf is equal
to 5.

## From investigating these representative
examples and other examples not included on this page, I conclude
that the length of a leaf (or the longest leaf) is determined
by .
