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

Use Euler's formula to write the given expression in the form a + ib:

e^(2-(pi/2)i)

2. Relevant equations

Euler's formula: e^(it) = cos(t) + i*sin(t)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure how to get started on this one... am I supposed to get the expression in to the e^(it) form somehow first?
