i know de moivres theorem cosa+isina

but how to proceed with inverses

Is there somewhere in this formula?

With no "i" Demoivre's theorem does not apply. I see nothing to do but evaluate that using a calculator.

If that was supposed to be

then use the fact that

Of course, . You should recognize that refers to an angle in a right triangle with "opposite side" 5 and "hypotenuse" 13. What is the length of the other leg? So what are the sine and cosine? - Feb 7th 2011, 04:58 AMSoroban
Hello, prasum!

Code:

5

Hence, the exponent is: .

*But what is the point of all this?*

We could have cranked out the answer on our calculator.
