Plot the point whose polar coordinates are given. Then find two other pairs of polar coordinates of this point, one with r > 0 and one with r < 0

so I did \(\displaystyle \frac{\pi}{3} + 2\pi = \frac{7\pi}{3} \therefore\) \(\displaystyle r > 0\)

and did \(\displaystyle \frac{\pi}{3} + \pi = - \frac{4}{3} \pi\) \(\displaystyle \therefore\) \(\displaystyle r < 0\)

so i have (2,7pi/3) & (-2, 4pi/3)

Will that work?
