# Complex Angles

**Algebra**Level 3

Consider the complex numbers \(w = \sqrt{3} - i\) and \(z = 2 + 2i\). The product of these two complex numbers can be written in the form \(r[\cos a^\circ + i\sin a^\circ ]\), where \(r\) is a positive real number and \( 0^\circ \leq a^\circ < 360^\circ\). What is the value of \(a\) (in degrees)?

**Details and assumptions**

\(i \) is the imaginary unit, where \(i^2=-1\).
