    any variable equals 1 automatically

    Basically take out an i^2 first so that you work with -1. I.e i^4 = (i^2)^2 so now you have (-1)^2 = 1. Do you understand up to there?

    if there is no value to a variable it becomes a 1.

    \[i^9=i^{4 \cdot 2 +1}=i^{4 \cdot 2} \cdot i^1=(i^4)^2 \cdot i=(1)^2 \cdot i\] \[=1 \cdot i=i\]

    pattern is \[i^0=1\] \[i^1=i\] \[i^2=-1\] \[i^3=-i\] \[i^4=1\] and so on. so your real job is to take the integer remainder when you divide the power by 4. for example \[i^{103}=i^3=-i\]
