(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Questions on it's own are relatively simple, however, there is a bonus question which asks ''with a right choice of Theta, show how you can do question 36 easily with question 38''

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Attempting question 36, it is known that B^8 is the identity matrix, so B^2001 is I*B.

Question 38 is just using some product to sum formulas etc, but I'm stuck as to how I apply question 38 to solve 36? my initial guess is Theta=pi or pi/2?

Any hints, tips would be much appreciated.
