polar coordinates?

I don't know if this follow up to my original message will even be seen 
because of all the spam advertising e-books that at least from the 
titles appear to have nothing to do with python.

I apologize for being overly wordy in my description, but I suppose I 
was worried that if I did not go into great detail about exactly what I 
was trying to do, someone might suggest a package that solves part of my 
problem, but not all of it.

I downloaded and installed matplotlib.  At first I was a bit worried 
because I have seem to have 3 libraries that contain python "include" 
files: /usr/lib/python/python27, .../python3, and .../python35, and it 
at least appeared to install it into the python3 directory, but my IDE 
uses 3.5.  Well I did some of the tutorials that are on YouTube, and it 
seems to work fine.

Matplotlib makes the very simple plots that I wish to make in just a few 
statements, (scatter plot, etc.), but to make them into representations 
of PI, each dot on the scatter plot or whatever has to be a different 
color: point 1 is color(3), point 2 is color(1), point 3 is color(4), 
etc.  I am not sure if matplotlib is able to make each dot in the 
scatterplot or whatever a differnt color in the single staement that 
makes to plot, or if a loop has to be set up to draw each of the dots 
individually in a different color, but I think it will work and with 
relatively simple code.

Other statements in the thread I will take under advisement, I suppose.

got to every couple of months to empty out, and anything sent to it will 
not be seen for probably several months, if it is seen at all.
