how to sketch sin angle +icos angle on an argand diagram?
Mind giving us an example? Just evaluate - that's your real part and then that's your imaginary part - from which you should be able to plot it on an argand diagram in the usual way.

For example: which you should be able to plot by placing a dot 1/2 a unit along the real axis and rt(3)/2 units up the imaginary axis.

Do you mean ?

Assuming there is no typo, you should know that

Evaluate and multiply the complex number by i and you'll be able to plot that in your argand diagram.
This doesn't make sense, why would he/she do this? Look at my answer.

I've deleted my answer. It would have produced the same thing however there were unnecessary steps.

It would have, but it's akin to saying "plot on an argand diagram, first write this as , evluate then multiply it by then plot it v/s just plot a+ib directly".

The point lies on a unit circle, inclined at the given angle to the positive x axis

Read the question again. It's not .
9. I mean how to sketch sin theta +icos theta on an argand diagram?

what if the question states that 0<theta<pie/2 instead of pie/6?

How about you show us the question?
13. The question is
Sketch sin theta +icos theta on an argand diagram, where 0<theta<pie/2. find also its modulus and argument.

he means do one of these;

also i would suggest drawing it for then rubbing out 3/4s of it

If you do FP2 then you could do like this;

now its an easy sketch

I got the modulus part. How do you find the argument?

Yea, that part I have no idea about

If I was doing it in an exam I would write 0<x<pi/2 because that was the restriction but I'm really not sure
