http://www.wyzant.com/resources/files/263634/polar_intersection_numeric_solution and http://www.wyzant.com/resources/files/263648/polar_intersection_numeric_solution_2 approximate the solution by finding the intersections of two graphs. [Using Mac OS X's Grapher utility and GeoGebra.] I'm stumped on how to do this analytically. 3/1/2014 | Steve S. Comment
