    I've done the proof part, but I'm not sure how to do the part I've put a box around :/ All I've figured out that there will be 6 roots and theta will equal pi/4

    what about the values of n and theta?

    Yeah I said theta would be pi/4

    N would equal 3

    Isn't obvious then that

    either

    z3 = eiπ/4

    or

    z3 = e-iπ/4

    Maybe it's both
    z3 = eiπ/4 AND z3 = e-iπ/4

    because you should have 6 roots in the end

    I'll try it out, in the meantime, how would you do this question? I can do the represent part, but I can't do the whole "show that |z-4|/|z-1| is a constant" etc

    thank you for letting me know it has 6 roots. Life here is a constant education
