use Demoivre's Theorem to find the indicated power of the complex number. Express the result in standard form.

(2+2i)^6

a=2 b=2 n=6

r=sqrt 2^2 + 2^2 = sqrt8

Q=7pi/4

(sqrt8)^6 = 512

512(cos 6/1 x 7pi/4) + i sin 6 x 7pi/4

512 (cos 21pi/2) + i sin (21pi/2)

512(cos pi/2) + i (sin pi/2)

512(2+2i)

1024 + 1024i

Is this correct?

Rewrite (2+2i)^6 as

[2^3/2*(cos pi/4 + i sin pi/4)]^6

= 2^9*[cos 6pi/4 * i sin 6pi/4]

= 512* i sinpi/2

= -512 i

I see several error in your derivation.

Where did you get the angle of 7π/4 ?

I get an angle of π/4

check:

√8(cos π/4 + i sin π/4_

= √8(1/√2 + i (1/√2)

= 2 + 2i

so by De Moivre's Theorem

(2+2i)^6

= √8^6(cos (6π/4) + i sin (6π/4))

= 512( + i(-1))

= - 512i
