    I haven't set one up, probably because I'm shockingly bad at M3 and haven't even learned the whole thing, bring on tomorrow Good luck!

    Of course there is? It's simply taking the real part as the x coordinate and the imaginary part as the y coordinate, which we basically do anyway.
    Then it's easy to find the midpoint.

    Ok thanks.. I've taught myself this module and effectively get everything apart from slipping up on Argand diagrams and I feel like these are considered 'easy' marks?

    I've taught myself this one too; actually I find most of it very easy but I have to admit I find the Argand stuff the hardest, mainly because I'm terrible at interpreting loci etc. So I certainly have to think longer on some of those Qs. Would definitely not consider the trickier Argand ones the 'easy' marks myself (I'd consider everything else that XD) but maybe other people do.

    Gotta get 41% in this one and M2 on average or I'm not gonna meet my offer. That means if I get 0% in this one I'll need 82% in M2, too much pressure...

    All you have to do is use the factorisation from (a). Notice how you can choose the value of \theta.

    Then just solving two z^4 equations which is standard stuff.
