## Homework Statement

Solve [itex]\sqrt{-e^{(i2\pi)/3}}[/itex]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I seem to be missing something simple, as I take:

[itex]\sqrt{-1}[/itex] = i

then,

[itex]e^{(1/2)*(i2\pi)/3}[/itex]

which comes out as: [itex]ie^{i\pi/3}[/itex]

however, the solution is:

[itex]-ie^{i\pi/3}[/itex], and I can't seem to see where that negative is coming from. Any direction would be great, thanks!
