I am given this:

x=r(cos u + i sin u) and y=t(cos v + i sin v)

and I'm being asked to (1) prove that the modulus of (xy) is the product of their moduli, and (2) prove that the amplitude of (xy) is the sum of their amplitudes, showing each step of both proofs.

I understand modulus with respect to the time of day using a 12 hour clock, but I'm finding it hard to apply, nevermind prove this situation. Just need some direction!!!! Thanks so much.
