Find the modulus for:

(3 - 4i)^10/(2 - i)^8

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried putting the two terms in their exponential forms. Then do simple exponential operations and convert back to cartesian form to get the modulus.

3 - 4i = [itex]5e^{arctan(-4/3)}[/itex]

2 - i = [itex]\sqrt{5}e^{arctan(1/2)}[/itex]

However the arguments aren't going to be exact numbers. Is there another way to approach this question?
