A small portion of the last chapter in my textbook is devoted to cis problems. It is very unclear about the cis trigometric function, providing no examples whatsoever.
Here are two problems from my textbook I attempted to work on:
"Write in a + bi form:
Round the value of a to the hundredth.
Leave your answer in the form ___+___i"
Leave your answer in the form ___cis___°"
If I could get an explanation on these two problems, I'll (hoprefully) be able to work though the rest, and I'll have a good study session. I'm guaranteed at least one question on cis on my final.
At first I thought the folks who wrote the book made a typo for cos, given the "I" key on the keyboard is so close to the "O" key.
Many thanks in advance to quick help!
"cis" means "cos+isin"
For a complex number a+bi..."a" is the real part and "bi" is the imaginary part.
hence ... and
Now combine the real parts to get "a" and the imaginary parts to get "b"
after applying the appropriate trigonometric identities to them.
