#(3-2i)^5=69sqrt13(cos5alpha+isin5alpha)#,
where #alpha=tan^(-1)(-2/3)#
DeMoivre's Theorem states that if a complex number #z# in polar form is given by #z=r(costheta+isintheta)#
then #z^n=r^n(cosntheta+isinntheta)#
Here #|3-2i|=sqrt(3^2+2^2)=sqrt13#, hence we can write #3-2i# as #sqrt13(cosalpha+isinalpha)#, where #alpha=tan^(-1)(-2/3)#
Hence #(3-2i)^5#
= #(sqrt13)^5(cos5alpha+isin5alpha)#
= #169sqrt13(cos5alpha+isin5alpha)#
How do you use DeMoivre's Theorem to simplify #(3-2i)^5#?
