√(1+i)/√(1-i)

= √(1+i)√(1-i) / (1-i)

= √(1-i^2) / (1-i)

= √2/(1-i)

= √2(1+i) / (1-i)(1+i)

= √2(1+i)/2

= 1/√2 + 1/√2 i

a = 1/√2

b = 1/√2

a^2+b^2 = 1/2 + 1/2 = 1

or, using de Moivre's rule,

1+i = √2 cis π/4

so √(1+i) = ∜2 cis π/8

1-i = √2 cis -π/4

so √(1-i) = ∜2 cis -π/8

√(1+i)/√(1-i) = cis π/4

Now the angle doesn't matter, since cos^2+sin^2 = 1
