Draw the points A : i
and the point B: (1/(20.5)) + (1/(20.5))i on a argand digram and hence find the argument of A+B i drew it but i am clueless

$\displaystyle \arg (i) = \frac{\pi }{2}\;\& \;\arg \left( {\frac{{\sqrt 2 }}{2} + \frac{{\sqrt 2 }}{2}i} \right) = \frac{\pi }{4}$

The $\displaystyle \arg(A+B)=\arctan\left(\frac{\sqrt2+2}{\sqrt2} \right)$

they the mark scheme has 3pi/8 and specifically gave no marks for using that forumla and approximating the answer to 3pi/8, they said not to use that formula, they stressed to use the argand diagram to find it, any suggestions how, i did this first but then realised that they did not accept this method..please help

i forgot to mention they want the argument exactly in terms of pi, and have no marks for find A+B and finidnging the argument from that
