Complex number notation  transform from rectangular to polar
Hello
Simple question here. How do I transform a complex number from the rectangular a+i*b notation to the r<ยข notation (polar notation) in the HP Prime CAS. [/code] Thanks

Only in Home mode: enter coordinates then use [shift] [X] to switch between the coordinate type (in the history screen). Shift X is the angle sign.

Shift X is also fine to enter polar number :
100 Shift X 45

Many thanks for the responses
The CAS command polar_coordinates worked like a charm!
