1. ## complex plane

hi guys

x + yi = cos(theta) + i sin(theta)

I understand this formula quite quite well...

But I have problem to think/understand how come if I have cos(theta) + i sin(theta) given I can come up with the x+yi form

Think in this way:

If someone gave me this input

cos(theta) + i sin(theta) == cos(0.6) + i sin(0.8) % in rad - and ask me to find x+yi version of this...

E.g. they look for x + yi , this is equal with 3 + 4i

How come I can come to this kind of conclusion? ...

$\displaystyle \cos(0.6) + \mathbf{i} \sin(0.8)$ is in the $\displaystyle x +y \mathbf{i}$ form.
You see $\displaystyle x=\cos(0.8)~\&~y=\sin(0.8)$.

3. NO NO NO ... I am asking how to get x=3 y=4 ? ... that what you say is quite easy, right?

I have absolutely no idea what that means.

Given $\displaystyle 3+4\mathbf{i}$ let $\displaystyle \theta = \arctan \left( {\frac{4}{3}} \right)$.

Then $\displaystyle 3+4\mathbf{i}=5\cos(\theta)+5\mathbf{i}\sin(\theta )$.
Is that what it means?

5. Please read my first post, I think is quite well explained!

Based on maths we know this formula: x + yi = cos(theta) + i sin(theta)

Now think in this way, someone has given you the right-hand side e.g., cos(0.6) + i sin(0.8)

And is asking you to find the left-hand side, which in this case is 3 + 4i

But as you may guess, could be: 6 + 8i, 12 + 16i etc. as well

So my question is given the right-hand side can we find left-hand side? Since given left-hand side we can find right-hand side precisely!

Your got to be joking! Are you not?

Post an exact problem.

7. "Based on maths we know this formula: x + yi = cos(theta) + i sin(theta)" This is not correct, $\displaystyle z=x+iy=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}(\cos \theta+i\sin \theta)$ (trigonometrical form)

So $\displaystyle x=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}\cos \theta$ and $\displaystyle y=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}\sin \theta$. (I hope you know that $\displaystyle \sqrt{x^2+y^2}=|z|$)

For your example: (which is wrong/ not complete)
1. False. cos(0.6) + i sin(0.8)=cos(theta) + i sin(theta) Try to guess what is wrong here! ^^
2. $\displaystyle z=3 + 4i=x+iy (x=3, y=4)$
$\displaystyle |z|=\sqrt{3^2+4^2}=\sqrt{25}=5$
$\displaystyle \cos \theta = \frac{x}{|z|}=\frac{3}{5}$
$\displaystyle \sin \theta = \frac {y}{|z|}=\frac{4}{5}$

You have some serious problems with theory. Learn it! >.<

8. No I am not joking ... I am learning maths without a teacher thats right!

So, given this:
x + yi = cos(0.6) + i sin(0.8)

What is the value of x+yi - 3 + 4i, 6 + 8i or 12 + 16i - is possible to decide for one of those?

9. $\displaystyle z=x+iy=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}(\cos \theta+i\sin \theta)$ (trigonometrical form)

I had incomplete formula Plato sorry! This formula helps me to understand my way... no everything is clear!

Thanks to you Plato bot more to veileen
