    I got : cos ( 4 pi/3 ) + sin ( 4 pi/3)

    But the book says : cos ( - 2pi/3 ) + i sin ( - 2pi/3). Which is also right...

    ^ cos ( 4 pi/3 ) + i sin(4pi/3)

    Find the absolute value of this: \[\left| -\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } -\frac{ i \sqrt{3} }{ 2 }\right|\]

    So which should I prefer more ? -2pi/3 or 4 pi/3

    So \[=\sqrt{(-\frac{ 1 }{ 2 })^2+(-\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 })^2}\]

    So r=1

    Drawing it gives you a way better picture of what the angle is.

    \[\large{\sqrt{ (\frac{-1}{2} )^2 + ( \frac {- \sqrt{3}}{2})^2}}\] right so it is : \(\1\)

    You took the other angle

    You go backwards meaning it will be negative.

    By the diagram I think that the angle theta will surely lie in the III quadrant i.e. 4 pi /3

    If it's in the third of fourth quadrant go backwards.
