The question asks for the arguments in the range 0 to 2pi, so anything outside that range, you multiply/divide as appropriate, by 1, i.e. by .

looking at the answers it makes sense but without the answer in front of you how would know how to change (z+e^(-pi/6)) to (z-e^(7pi/6))- what property do you use- the graphs?

Those two are not equivalent.

They have switched the order of the factors.

To change a +e^.. to a -e^... they've multipled/divided by

so
