Homework Statement



Use Euler's formula to write [itex]2^{1-i}[/itex] in the form a+ib.

The Attempt at a Solution



I know this has to be so simple because I could do this easy if the question was to write [itex]e^{1-i}[/itex] in the form a+ib using Euler's. So what I do not understand is how does 1-i being raised on 2 rather than e change what I need to do to solve it. Thank you.

2^(1-i)=(e^log(2))^(1-i)=e^(log(2)*(1-i)).
