1. I need to know how to do this in matlab so i can compare the answer to my written work.
2. Using moivre's theorem?

Saw your post about this concerning MATLAB, and I'm not quite sure how to check it on there either, but you can easily use something like Wolfram Alpha for verification.

Anyhow, you need to express in the form where [rex]r[/tex] is the modulus and is the argument of the complex number. This is for and then take the 5th root of both sides.

A complex number such that can be represented in the polar form where [rex]r=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}[/tex] and
Only had like one or two lessons on that recently

Then you need to use this form.

Alternatively, if you have been through De Moivre's Theorem, you can represent your complex number in the form where so then
