Find all values of: tan^(-1) * (1 + i) The format for the final answer should be similar to this one: if the problem is tan^(-1) * (2i). answer: (n + 1/2)*pi + (i/2) * ln(3) , (n =0, +-1, +-2,...)

You are the process improvement manager and have developed a new machine to cut insoles for the company's top-of-the-line running shoes. You are excited because the company's goal is no more than 3.4 defects per million (very close to zero defects) and this machine may be the innovation you need. The insoles cannot be more than

I have two problems with complex numbers: 1) Use properties of moduli to sow that when |z3| does not equal |z4|, Re(z1 + z2) / |z3 + z4| <= (is smaller or equals) (|z1| + |z2|) / (| |z3| -|z4| |) 2) Verify that sqrt(2) * |z| >= |Re z| + |Im z| (suggestion: reduce this inequality to (|x| - |y|)^2 +. 0

see attached please expand on and explain the attached work ie how does one make the transformations shown in equation 1 and 2 and 3...please show this work in complete, painful detail I have given this as a new post as I believe it is outside the original post

What are complex numbers? What does imaginary parts of equal magnitude and opposite signs mean? What is the quadratic formula? What is it used for? Provide a useful example.

Find all the complex cube roots of w= 8(cos 150 + i sin 150). Write the roots in polar form with theta in degrees. answers look like; z sub 0 = ? (cos ?degrees + i sin ?degrees) z sub 1 = ? ( cos ?degrees + i sin ?degrees) z sub 2 + ? ( cos ?degrees + i sin ?degrees) First build the expression for x sub k with r=8, th

Write the expression in the standard form a + b i (sqrt 2 + i)^4 Write the result in a + b i form First convert to rectangular form--- calculate the magnitude-- find reference angle--then the argument of z--- Type answer in the form a +bi. Do not round until the final answer. Then round to the nearest thousandth as nee

Hello. I am trying to derive the attached expression from my textbook, but I am not able to understand, it involves taking the complex conjugate, where the overbar indicates complex conjugate. ** Please see the attached file for the complete problem description ** Thanks!

Measurement Error And Data Representation 1. State whether or not this statement is true or false, and explain: " An experienced scientist who is using the best equipment available only needs to measure things once—provided he doesn't make a mistake. After all, if he measures the same thing twice, he will get the same resul

If delta = (delta_1, ..., delta_d) is a d-tuple of positive numbers delta_i > 0, and E is a subset of R^d, we define delta E by delta E = {(delta_1 x_1, ..., delta_d x_d) : where (x_1, ..., x_d) belongs to E}. Prove that delta E is measurable whenever E is measurable, and m(delta E) = delta_1 ... delta_d m(E).
