    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    [itex]arg \left\{ sin \frac{8∏}{5} + i \left( 1 + cos\frac{8∏}{5}\right) \right\}[/itex]


    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    [itex]2sin \frac{4∏}{5} cos \frac{4∏}{5} + i2cos^{2} \frac{4∏}{5} \left(cos2θ=2cos^{2}θ-1 and sin2θ=2sinθcosθ\right)[/itex]

    After simplification what is the next step?

    Do you know what "argument" means in this problem?
