As learnt in

Definition of Argument/Amplitude of z in Complex Numbers -

\theta =tan^{-1}|\frac{y}{x}|, z\neq 0

\boldsymbol{\theta,\pi-\theta,-\pi+\theta,-\theta} are Principal Argument if z lies in first, second, third or fourth quadrant respectively.

- wherein

 

 

\left[ 1+\cos \frac {\pi}{5}+ i \sin \frac{\pi}{5} \right ]^{-1} 

\left[ 2\cos^{2} \frac {\pi}{10}+ 2i \sin \frac {\pi}{10} \cos \frac {\pi}{10} \right ]^{-1}

\frac{1}{2 \cos \frac{\pi}{10}}\times \left[ \cos \frac{\pi}{10} - i \sin \frac {\pi}{10} \right ]
