Overnight, I've been working on some more problems to keep practicing my skills. However, I'm having some trouble with these problems: Jul 15, 2021

Here is 7.1.3 This should also help with 7.1.5 if you were struggling to understand the meaning of cis.

For 7.1.4 multiply out the bracketed terms (using foil), then collect real and imaginary terms together, remembering that i^2 = -1.

$$\frac{w}{z}\\ = \frac{r}{s}\cdot\frac{\cos(\alpha)+i\sin(\alpha)}{\cos{\beta}+i\sin{\beta}}\\ = \frac{r}{s}\cdot\frac{(\cos(\alpha)+i\sin(\alpha))(\cos{\beta}-i\sin{\beta})} {(\cos{\beta}+i\sin{\beta})(\cos{\beta}-i\sin{\beta})}\\ = \frac{r}{s}\cdot\frac{(\cos(\alpha)+i\sin(\alpha))(\cos{\beta}-i\sin{\beta})}{\cos^2{\beta}+\sin^2{\beta}}\\ = \frac{r}{s}\cdot\frac{\cos{a}\cos{b}-i\sin{b}\cos{a}+i\sin{a}\cos{b}+\sin{\beta}\sin{\alpha}}{\cos^2{\beta}+\sin^2{\beta}}$$
$$\frac{r}{s}\cdot(\cos(\alpha-\beta)-i\sin(\alpha-\beta))\\=\boxed{\frac{r}{s}cis(\alpha-\beta)}$$
