    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 1+j in the form \displaystyle re^{i\theta + 2k \pi i} where [rex]r[/tex] is the modulus and \theta is the argument of the complex number. This is for k\in \{0,1,2,3,4 \} and then take the 5th root of both sides.

    Have you been taught different forms of a complex number??

    A complex number x+y\mathbf{i} such that x,y \in \mathbb{R} can be represented in the form re^{i\theta} where r=\sqrt{x^2+y^2} and \theta = arctan(\frac{y}{x})

    A complex number x+y\mathbf{i} such that x,y \in \mathbb{R} can be represented in the polar form re^{i\theta} where [rex]r=\sqrt{x^2+y^2}[/tex] and \theta = arctan(\frac{y}{x})
    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 z^5=r[\cos(\alpha)+\mathbf{i}\sin( \alpha)] where \alpha = \theta + 2\pi k so then z=\sqrt[5]{r}[\cos(\frac{1}{5} \alpha)+\sin(\frac{1}{5}\alpha) \mathbf{i} ]

    ok thank you.
