7(cos(120º) + isin(120º))

7(c(90º+30º) + isin(90º+30º))

= 7(-sin30º +icos30º)

= 7(-1/2 + (i√3)/2)

= -7/2(1 + i√3 )

1. -6 + 8i
= 10(-3/5 + 4i/5)
= 10(cos(cos^-1(-3/5)) + i(sin(sin^-1(4/5)).
As cosine is negative and sine is positive, our argument is in the second quadrant.

Option A is the right answer.
 A: 10(cos(126.9º) + isin(126.9º)).
