Given z = 1  sqrt(3)i
What is the value of theta?
I got pi/3 but that is not right, the correct answer is 2pi/3
Thanks

i still dont get it?
Hello, taurus!
Did you make a sketch?
Quote:
Given: .$\displaystyle z \:= \:1  i\sqrt{3}$
What is the value of $\displaystyle \theta$ ?
Code:


1 
  +   *    
: /
_ : / 
√3 : / 
: / 
:/ 
* 
Can you see that the angle is: .$\displaystyle \theta \;=\;240^o\,\text{ or }\,\text{}120^o$ ?
In radians: .$\displaystyle \theta \;=\;\frac{4\pi}{3}\,\text{ or }\,\text{}\,\frac{2\pi}{3}$
How did u get the 2pi/3?
i did this:
120*pi/360
=pi/3 which is not right?
