Find the modulus and the principal value of the argument for the complex number [tex]\sqrt{3}[/tex] - i

3. The attempt at a solution

I know the modulus is just 'square both, add, and square root of sum', so r = [tex]\sqrt{2}[/tex], but I don't know how to find the second part. I know vaguely that the argument = [tex]\theta[/tex], but I don't know where to go from here.

Do I need to convert the complex number into polar or euler form?
