    1.Solve Z^3 = 8i givin each of roots in the form re^(itheta) wher r>0

    2. |z-1-i| = 4 find the min and max values of |z| for points on the locus
    1. express 8i as 2^3 (cos(pi/2)+isin(pi/2)) and then apply De Movre's theorem

    2. it is equivalent to |z-(1+i)| = 4 and so its a circle with centre 1+i and radius of 4
    draw it on the Argand Diagram
    the complex numbers corresponding to the min and max values of |z| should lies on the line joining the centre and the origin
    the min is in the South-West direction and the max North-East

    how do u knw its pi/2 tho?
    all complex number a+bi can be expressed in form of R(cosx+isinx)
    the modulus, R = root(a^2 + b^2)
    so Rcosx = a and Rsinx = a
    x = arcos(a/R) and x = arsin(a/R)
    x can have two values for each of the above equations
    the same value of x coming from the two equations is the argument

    follow it and u can find pi/2

    z^3 = 8e^(i pi/2)
    => z = 2e^(i pi/6) or 2e^(5i pi/6) or 2e^(9i pi/6).

    The min and max both occur on the line through 0 and 1 + i.

    min = 4 - sqrt(2),
    max = 4 + sqrt(2).
