Thank you for any help

The number is:

ln[16e^(-2*pi*i/17)]

Thank you, I've re-loaded it and typed it out just in case it doesn't work again

Bu then you need to think about the different possible arguments the number you are taking the logarithm of

Could this be done using ln(z) = ln|z| + iArg(z) ?

Yes, though you mean

ln(z) = ln|z| + iArg(z)

ln(z) = ln|z| + iArg(z)
yes thank you, I tried to correct that as soon as a I posted it. Am I right in thinking since z = re^(i.theta) => z = 16 and theta = -2*pi/17

=> ln[16e^(-2i.pi/17)} = ln|16| + i(-2.pi/17 + 2.pi.k) , where kEZ

Yep.

No need for |16|. Just 16 will do.

And could write ln16 = 4ln2 if you wanted.
