a) Find the square roots of $$3+4i$$.

$$\begin{array}{rcll} z= a+bi &=& 3+4i \\ |z| &=& \sqrt{a^2+b^2} \\ &=& \sqrt{3^2+4^2} \\ &=& 5 \\ \sin(\varphi) &=& \frac{b}{|z|} \\ &=& \frac{4}{5} \\ &=& 0.8 \\ \varphi &=& \arcsin(0.8) +2k\pi \\\\ z &=& |z|e^{i\varphi} \\ \mathbf{z} & \mathbf{=} & \mathbf{5e^{i\cdot ( \arcsin(0.8)+2k\pi) }} \\ \end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \sqrt{3+4i} \\ &=& (3+4i)^{\frac12} \\ &=& 5^{\frac12} \left( e^{i\cdot ( \arcsin(0.8)+2k\pi) }\right)^{\frac12} \\ &=& \sqrt{5}\cdot e^{i\cdot \left( \frac{\arcsin(0.8)+2k\pi}{2}\right)} \\ &=& \sqrt{5}\cdot e^{i\cdot \left( \frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}+k\pi\right)} \quad & | \quad k =(0,1) \\\\ \sqrt{3+4i} &=& \sqrt{5}\cdot e^{i\cdot \left( \frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}\right)} \quad & | \quad k = 0 \\ &=& \sqrt{5} \cdot \left( \cos( \frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2} ) + i \cdot \sin(\frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}) \right) \\ &=& 2.23606797750 \cdot \left( 0.89442719100 + i \cdot 0.44721359550 \right) \\ &=& 2+i\cdot 1 \\\\ \sqrt{3+4i} &=& \sqrt{5}\cdot e^{i\cdot \left( \frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}+\pi\right)} \quad & | \quad k = 1 \\ &=& \sqrt{5} \cdot \left( \cos( \frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}+\pi ) + i \cdot \sin(\frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}+\pi) \right) \\ &=& \sqrt{5} \cdot \left( -\cos( \frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}) - i \cdot \sin(\frac{\arcsin(0.8)}{2}) \right) \\ &=& 2.23606797750 \cdot \left( -0.89442719100 - i \cdot 0.44721359550 \right) \\ &=& -2-i\cdot 1 \\\\ \hline \end{array}$$

Simplify the following:
sqrt(4 i + 3)

Express 4 i + 3 as a square using 4 i + 3 = 4 + 4 i + i^2, then look to factor.
3 + 4 i = 4 + 4 i - 1 = 4 + 4 i + i^2 = (i + 2)^2:
sqrt((i + 2)^2 )

For all complex z with Re(z)>0, sqrt(z^2) = z.
Cancel exponents. sqrt((2 + i)^2) = i + 2:
2 + i    and    -2 - i

Simplify the following:
(8 i)^(1/3)

Express 8 i as a cube using 8 i = 3 sqrt(3) + 9 i + 3 sqrt(3) i^2 + i^3, then look to factor.

8 i = 3 sqrt(3) + 9 i - 3 sqrt(3) - i = 3 sqrt(3) + 9 i + 3 sqrt(3) i^2 + i^3 = (sqrt(3))^3 + 3 (sqrt(3))^2 i + 3 sqrt(3) i^2 + i^3 = (sqrt(3) + i)^3:
((sqrt(3) + i)^3 )^(1/3)

For all complex z with -π/3 Cancel exponents. ((sqrt(3) + i)^3)^(1/3) = sqrt(3) + i:

sqrt(3) + i      -sqrt(3) + i        -2i
