Solving arg(z1z2)?

  1. Sep 14, 2006 #1
    I am confused on a homework problem.

    It states that the Arg(z1z2) = Arg (z1) + Arg (z2) if -90 < z1 >/= 90 , and -90 < z2 >/= 90 , describe the set of points that meet this criteria? I am not sure how to answer this, I'm not sure I know entirely what they are asking. I haven't taken a math course in 3 years so I'm out of practice. Please help!!

    can you post exactly what the problem says? i don't understand the -90 < z1 >/= 90 stuff. it looks like it could mean arg(z1) is in some range of degrees but it's not clear.

    That is what the book says except the book uses radians instead of degrees

    Then don't covert to degrees. That just confuses the issue.

    The further problem is that "It states that the Arg(z1z2) = Arg (z1) + Arg (z2) if -90 < z1 >/= 90 , and -90 < z2 >/= 90 , describe the set of points that meet this criteria? " says nothing about what "criteria" are being referred to!
