Step 1. Convert (-2 + 2i) into polar form:

r = √((-2)2 + 22) = √8 = 23/2

tan θ = 2/-2 = -1

⇒ θ = arctan(-1) = 3π/4 (in 2nd quadrant)

⇒ (-2 + 2i) = 23/2(cos 3π/4 + i sin 3π/4)

Step 2. Apply DeMoivre's Theorem:

3√(-2 + 2i) = (-2 + 2i)1/3

= (23/2(cos 3π/4 + i sin 3π/4))1/3

= 21/2(cos π/4 + i sin π/4)

Which provides one root; for the other two roots, add 1/3 a turn = 2π/3 and 2/3 a turn = 4π/3 to the angle:

z1 = √2(cos π/4 + i sin π/4)

z2 = √2(cos 11π/12 + i sin 11π/12)

z3 = √2(cos 19π/12 + i sin 19π/12)

[adding the next third of a turn comes back to the first root.]

2 cube root 24 plus 3 cube root 81 is 18.7492444

Negative 2 (times) cube root of 54 = -7.55953 Negative 2 (plus) cube root of 54 = 1.77976

(-2 + 3i) + (-1 - 2i) = -2 + 3i - 1 - 2i = -2 - 1 + 3i - 2i = -3 + i

√-8 = √[(i^2)(2^2)(2)] = 2i√2

the inverse of the cube root of x is 2
