Roots of Complex Numbers (Sharp, TI, Casio)
Hi all.
On a whim (and maybe a hunch, but a damn lucky guess), I keyed in a method that calculates nth roots of Complex Numbers on the TI36X Pro/30X Pro MathPrint Sharp ELW516X and T Casio 115ES and 991 line. It goes like this: Example Calculate 4th root of (15625+0.719413999i) Let x= 15625, y=0.719413999 TI30X Pro MathPrint: [math] [P→Rx] (x^.25,y/4) → 11 [Real part] [math] [P→Ry] (x^.25,y/4) → 2 [Imaginary part] Thus, the answer is 11+2i General algorithm: Calculate nth root of x+yi [math] [P→Rx] (x^(1/n),y/n) → a [Real part] [math] [P→Ry] (x^(1/n),y/n) → b [Imaginary part] Casio & Sharp models would then follow the above algorithm. But then I thought maybe the algorithm for Raising i to integer powers could be modified as an alternative method. For a reminder, Example 1: (11 + 2i)^4 = 11753 + 10296i (Radian Mode) R>Pr(11,2)^4 sto→ x (15625) R>PΘ(11,2)*4 sto→ y (0.719413999) P>Rx(x,y) returns 11753 P>Ry(x,y) returns 10296 So, wouldn't just switching to this: Example: Calculate the 4th root of a+bi (Radian Mode) R>Pr(a,b)^(1/4) sto x R>PΘ(a,b)/4 sto y P>Rx(x,y) P>Ry(x,y) or would this work: (Radian Mode) R>Pr(a^(1/4),b/4) sto x R>PΘ(a^(1/4),b/4) sto y P>Rx(x,y) P>Ry(x,y) ? or the first algorithm noted above the accurate and only method?

z = z * e^(θ*i), where θ = arg(z)
(a^b)^c = a^(b*c) → z^k = z^k * e^(kθ*i) (12302022 10:58 PM)Matt Agajanian Wrote: Example Calculate 4th root of (15625+0.719413999i) This example is in error, since (11 + 2i)^4 = 11753 + 10296i This is what it mean: (15625 * e^(0.719413999i)) ^ 0.25 = (15625 ^ 0.25) * e^(0.719413999i * 0.25) ≈ (11 + 2i)

step by step solutions by using DeMoivre's theorem
https://www.emathhelp.net/calculators/al...13999i&n=4 or video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6bUy4Vg7yM So similarly for TI30X Pro: 1. step: enter complex number 15625+0.719413999i 2. get magnitude and angle, optionally you can store these values to memory, e.g. magnitude to x and angle to y 3. enter nth root from magnitude, enter angle symbol (menu "complex"  option 1), enter angle divided by the n 4 press enter to get result for n=4: x^(1/4)<y/4 11.18033989+0.000128693i nth root with 2 steps only https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gWJEZgohAk

(12312022 11:41 PM)klesl Wrote: step by step solutions by using DeMoivre's theorem Yes. Thanks. But, is a way to arrive at the final answers by just using the 36X Pro and 30X Pro MathPrint without all the gymnastics? But what function am I using when I put (15625+0.719413999i)^(1/4) into the 42S and get 11+2i as a single result?

RE: Roots of Complex Numbers (Sharp, TI, Casio)
(11+2i)^4=11753+10296*i
it is pretty clear 11+2i is not result of your example (15625+0.71941399i)^(1/4)

Thus I suggest to use \(r\) and \(t\) instead. Hopefully this prevents you from writing \(r + it\) when you mean \(r \cdot e^{it}\).

I can see and understand what to do on the 42S since it can handle the whole range of transcendental functions in complex mode. And I have entered the (11+2i)^4 as well as calculating the fourth root of the previous result. But, switching it around to accomplishing the same functions and results on the 36X Pro and 30X Pro MathPrint, how would I do that? Yes, I can use the 42 instead of the 30 and 36. I'd just like to know how it can be accomplished on the TI models.

Let's assume: \( \begin{align} z &= 11753 + 10296i \\ &= a + ib \\ \\ &= 15625 \, \measuredangle \, 0.719413999 \\ &= u \, \measuredangle \, v \\ \end{align} \) Rectangular Coordinates Here we use \(a + ib = 11753 + 10296i\): (Radian Mode) R>Pr(a, b)^(1/4) sto r R>PΘ(a, b)/4 sto t P>Rx(r, t) P>Ry(r, t) Polar Coordinates Here we use \(u \, \measuredangle \, v = 15625 \, \measuredangle \, 0.719413999\): (Radian Mode) u^(1/4) sto r v/4 sto t P>Rx(r, t) P>Ry(r, t) I must admit that I have no idea how this calculator works. Thus I could be totally wrong.

Correct?

(01012023 10:03 PM)Matt Agajanian Wrote: Correct? This looks good to me. But now both blocks became identical. You could use variables \(x\) and \(y\) instead of \(a\) and \(b\) if that helps for readability. And another variable \(n\) for the exponent instead of \(4\): R>Pr(x, y)^n sto r R>PΘ(x, y)*n sto t P>Rx(r, t) P>Ry(r, t) Now you can use it for any of these cases:

Anyway, thanks for the catch all process. Yeah, even though my samples were specific values, it was just making an example.
