    Prove by induction - complex numbers

    Hello,
    I had a rule relating the power n in an equation of Z^n= a+bi , where l a+bi l =1 , to the length of side of the regular polygon formed by the roots of the equations on Cartesian plane.
    The rule I got is : D=2sin(pi/n)
    I need to prove this relation using mathematical induction.
    Thanks.
