[2(cos(pi/3)+isin(pi/3))]^(.5)

I simplified it to 2^(.5) * (cos(pi/6)+isin(pi/6)), but I have no idea what else to go to.

Any tips would be very helpful,

thx in advance

You have not simplified anything. You have demonstrated half of DeMoivre's formula. Now move on to the other half. You should find two solutions separated by .

**are**and ? You should be able to give exact values. ( radians is the same as 30degreees.)
