    Christmas Math Riddle with Complex Numbers

    I have a bonus question I am trying to figure out.

    What does Santa Claus have in common with the "Northern most" 8th Root of 1?

    The only thing I was able to come up with was that +i is on the Imaginary Axis going north in essence, Any other input?

    Bonus questions sound like they count towards final grade. Please read forum rule #6.
