Since i2 = −1
+ i (sin(α) cos(β ) + cos(α) sin(β )) Factor out i
= cos(α + β ) + i sin(α + β ) Sum identities = cis(α + β ) Deﬁnition of ‘cis’ Putting this together with our earlier work, we get zw = z wcis(α + β ), as required.
Moving right along, we next take aim at the Power Rule, better known as DeMoivre’s Theorem.11
We proceed by induction on n. Let P (n) be the sentence z n = z n cis(nθ). Then P (1) is true, since
z 1 = z = z cis(θ) = z 1 cis(1 · θ). We now assume P (k ) is true, that is, we assume z k = z k cis(kθ)
for some k ≥ 1. Our goal is to show that P (k + 1) is true, or that z k+1 = z k+1 cis((k + 1)θ). We
have
z k+1 = z k z Properties of Exponents = z k cis(kθ) = z k z  =
