    This is like the second question i've come across of this nature and I couldn't do either (partly because I haven't been taught this bit yet) so thought i'd ask for help.

    The complex number Z is such that modulus of Z is 7 and the Argument of 2 is 11π/6. Find Z in the form a+bi where a and b are exact real numbers to be found

    I have no idea where to start thank you for any replies

    Express z in polar form. R (cos(argz)+isin (argz)) and evaluate the arguments.

    You may find it helpful to plot the point first of all, on an argand diagram, include the modulus and argument. Then the x,y components a,b, may become clear.
