Hello, Greenb!

Is this the problem?

We have: .

And we want: . .[1]

Using half-angle identities:

Ah I forgot that |z| equals the hypotenuse, but I'm not with you all the way on the half angle identities part, seeing that its a cubicequation, it should have two roots.

And what if the equation was;

could it be solved the same way?

I'm Swedish by the way so sorry if I don't get the termonoligy right.
