Express the complex number π§ is
equal to π to the power of negative four minus 23π over 12 π in the form of π
multiplied by π to the power of ππ.

In this question, weβre asked to
express the complex number in exponential form such that π§ is equal to π
multiplied by π to the power of ππ, where π is the magnitude, or modulus, of the
complex number and π is its argument.

We will begin by defining π in
terms of its principal value, that is, the value of π that is greater than negative
π and less than or equal to π. Letβs go back to our complex number
and see how we can write it in this form. We recall from our laws of
exponents or indices that π₯ to the power of π multiplied by π₯ to the power of π
is equal to π₯ to the power of π plus π. This means that we can rewrite the
complex number as π to the power of negative four multiplied by π to the power of
negative 23π over 12 π.

We now have our value for π. Itβs π to the power of negative
four. π is negative 23π over 12. However, we want our principal
value to be greater than negative π and less than or equal to π. And clearly, our value is outside
of this range. We recall that we can find the
principal value by adding or subtracting multiples of two π to the value of π. In this case, we will add two π to
negative 23π over 12. We can write two π as 24π over
12, giving us negative 23π over 12 plus 24π over 12. This is equal to π over 12. And we can therefore express our
complex number as π to the power of negative four multiplied by π to the power of
π over 12 π. This is the exponential form of the
complex number π to the power of negative four minus 23π over 12 π.
