Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First, you need to change 2i into polar form. Can you show me what you get when it's in polar form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1On a graph, dw:1353369315067:dw2i is located there. The angle from the positive real axis, to the negative imaginary axis, is \(3\pi/2\). So the polar form should be \[2\text{ cis} (3\pi/2)\]or\[\Large 2e^{\frac{3i\pi}{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh! Okay, I see! I'm going to work it out with the information you have just given me. Thank you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As a hint, it's a lot easier to take roots of \(2e^{\frac{3i\pi}{2}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So far, I have 2cis3pi/10 and 2cis7pi/10. Am I on the right track?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Remember that you need to have \[\Large \sqrt[5]{2}\]out in front of those, but otherwise, I think those are correct.
