    225 degrees rings a bell, no?

    Not yet ;) I meant that sin225 and cos225 are supposed to be well-known numbers: they have to do with the 45-45-90 degree triangle, with sides a, a and a√2. Does that ring a bell? See image. Both sin225 and cos225 are: \[-\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\sqrt{2}\]

    so you mean the angles should be in the first quadrant?

    No, 225 is in the third quadrant. I only meant that in the 3rd quadrant you get the same values (just negative) as in the triangle with 45-45-90 degrees.

    Therefore you now have \[3(-\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\sqrt2+i \cdot -\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\sqrt 2)\]And if you work out the brackets you're done.
