My attempt:

i) This is simple,$\displaystyle z = \sqrt{8}e^{\frac{3\pi}{4}i}; w = 2e^{\frac{-2\pi}{3}i} ; zw = 2\sqrt{8}e^{\frac{\pi}{12}i}$

ii) I'm not sure how to go about this. I notice that the argument of the previous answer matches that of this question. However, I do not know how to attempt it.

Any help would be great!
