TopNewestif you are asking about the square root of a complex number in standard form ie \(a+ib\) the method is simple.

Let \(\sqrt{a+ib} = x+iy \Rightarrow a+ib = (x+iy)^{2}\)

simplifying we get \(a+ib = x^{2}-y^{2}+2xyi \Rightarrow a = x^{2}-y^{2}\) and \(b = 2xy\) – Snehdeep Arora · 4 years ago
