Hey mathfag188.

Are you aware of De-Moivre's theorem and how to use that to solve roots for z^n = 1? - Apr 22nd 2013, 05:35 AMProve ItRe: complex numbers problem

I dont understand what yuo did in 8th step, how you expanded it?

other thing, did you read the solution i posted? there its done in almost 5 steps :P

actually what i wanted to ask and i was stuck on this step

how does the following happen?

in solution it says "cis" where i have put cos, as i was thinking it was a typo in solution but if there is something as cis do let me know(Worried)
