Hi, I need to find all roots to the equation This is what i tried: And the angle of -16i is 270 degrees or All the roots are on the form So the first root should be But it's just not correct.

Are you sure? gives

An alternative method is to remember that if you're taking the 4th root, there will be 4 roots, and they are all evenly spaced around a circle.
