first convert to polar form

$$2\sqrt{3}-2i\\=4(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}-\frac{i}{2})\\=4(\cos(-30)+i\sin(-30))\\=4(cis(-30))$$

The magnitude will be fourth-rooted, while the angle will divide by 4.

Also, note that adding 90 to the angle will still make it a root, because 90*4=360.

$$\sqrt{2}(cis(-7.5)), \sqrt{2}(cis(-7.5)+90), \sqrt{2}(cis(-7.5+180)), \sqrt{2}(cis(-7.5+270))$$
