Im a first year physics student and am having trouble with this question on complex numbers, any help would be greatly appreciated:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

find all the roots of the following equation:

z^4 + 1/2(1 - i3^(1/2)) = 0

I know that z can be expressed as an exponential, but I don't know how or even if it helps. I tried doing it with normal algebra but you get to a stage where you have to find the 4th root of i.
