Euler’s formula:

From the Euler’s formula, we can derive that

If we write the above equation in reverse, we get

These identities are useful for quick manipulations of complex numbers. Below are two examples:

**Example 1: **Solve .

*Solution*

**Example 2:** Solve .

*Solution*

Note that we can also write . On the trigonometric circle, and yield the same angle.
