My Mathematica notebook nthRoots.nb may help you. You can download it from the Files page at my web site: http://www.math.umass.edu/~murray/Math_421_Eisenberg/ For its graphics, that notebook relies upon David Park's "Presentations" Mathematica application. In case that's not available to you, on that same Files page I have a pdf version of the evaluated notebook. dragonman wrote: > I want the solutions to x^n=1 to appear in the form r(cos theta +isin > theta) and then to graph them on an Argand diagram.
