The rectangular equation is, $xy=2$

Work Step by Step

Using, $r\cos \theta =x$ and $r\sin \theta =y$ we will convert the polar equation to the rectangular equation. Therefore, $\begin{align} & {{r}^{2}}\sin 2\theta =4 \\ & 2{{r}^{2}}\sin \theta \cos \theta =4 \\ & r\sin \theta \times r\cos \theta =2 \\ & xy=2 \end{align}$
