Complex tangent

    i tried evaluating this http://www4a.wolframalpha.com/Calculate/MSP/MSP47881a005158fa72fi31000026df4f1iaf7g05e7?MSPStoreType=image/gif&s=49&w=109&h=39 [Broken]

    and the correct answer r = 1.1147 and theta = 75.9

    however, i tried to do it manually and ended with this

    with different r and theta. any ideas?
