You will find many examples of this type of question in this subforum. If you need more help, please show all your work and say where you get stuck.

Find the modulus and argument of z (i.e. write z in polar form) 2. Use DeMoivre to calculate $\displaystyle \sqrt[5]{z}$=$\displaystyle z^\frac{1}{5}$
