Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i^1=i i^2=1 i^3=i i^4=1 That's the pattern, so look for anay number smaller than the given or the given and check if it's divisible by 4. In this case as rahul91 wrote 4*8+1=33 so you know that i^32 equals 1 and i^1 equals i so the answer is 1*i
