    Hi, i would have thought the modulus-argument form of 7 would = 7(cos0 + isin0), which would give the right answer but i look in the answer section of my FP2 book and i'm seeing that they have 7 = 7(cosθ + isinθ), maybe a mistake by the authors thinking they were zeros but just want to make sure i'm not missing anything here.

    I've found the question - I agree with you. Modulus-argument form requires that you give a value for both r and θ.

    My answer to this question would be neither. It'd be 7 = 7(cos(n*2pi)+isin(n*pi))
    where n is a natural number (0,1,2,3,...)

    Definitely true - in this instance though answers were required to be in the form -\pi < \theta \leq \pi.

    Theta is inferior or equal to pi. sin is 0 both at theta = 0 and theta = pi.

    Ah I missed that, thanks.
