Prove that z^(k+1) is true for n=k+1

I'm having some problem recalling the trig identity.

I've work up till this part:

r^k . r^1 [Cos(k.theta)Cos(theta)-Sin(K.theta)Sin(theta)+i(Cos(theta)Sin(K.theta)+Co s(K.theta)Sin(theta)]

I need to reduce the above to its relevant trig identity to yield: r^(K+1) [Cos(K+1)theta + iSin(K+1)theta]

Hey Darrykwc

I believe you are trying to prove De Moivre's Theorem.

Find the proof here

No, the thread should NOT be deleted. Instead you should post your solution so that others who might be having a similar trouble in future might be able to refer to it.
