(a) The complex number w is given by $3+3\sqrt{3}i$
(i) Find the modulus and argument of w, giving your answer in exact form.
(ii) Without using a calculator, find the smallest positive integer value of n for which $(\frac{w^3}{w^*})^n$ is a real number.

(b) The complex number z is such that $z^5 = - 4 \sqrt{2}$
(i) Find the value of z in the form $re^{i\theta}$, where $r > 0$ and $- \pi \textless \theta \le \pi$.
(ii) Show the roots on an argand diagram.
(iii) The roots represented by $z_1$ and $z_2$ are such that $0 \textless arg({z_1}) \textless arg({z_2}) \textless \pi$. The locus of all points z such that $|z - z_1| = |z-z_2|$ intersects the line segment joining points representing $z_1$ and $z_2$ at the point P. P represents the complex number p. Find, in exact form, the modulus and argument of p.
