The answers are in this thread - you may need to look back several pages.

Mr.M, if i used degrees instead of radians for the argand diagram questions, will i be marked down?

Do you mean the argument questions?

Probably not on question 4 as it does not give an interval for the angle.

10 gives an interval in radians but you could have converted to degrees and then back again without losing any marks.
15. yh sorry i was talking about question 4 its just that i always work in degrees i hate radians lol
