# Homework Help: Simple question about Complex Logarithms

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Log(exp(10i))

3. The attempt at a solution

Since we want to get this in terms of the principal argument, would it matter if we ultimately wrote i(10 - 3$\pi$) or i(10 - 4$\pi$), since they are both in range?

Yes it matters. i(10 - 3pi) is not a full cycle difference, so not an equivalent angle.
