How do you find the polar coordinates of the point

Step 1
The polar coordinates of
is
Since the distance of the point from the origin is $\sqrt{{\left(-2\right)}^{2}+{\left(0\right)}^{2}}=2$
so $r=2$
Since the line segment (vector) from the origin to (-2,0) and the positive x-axis makes ${180}^{\circ }$, which iss $\pi$ radians; therefore, $\theta =\pi$
