# Express each of the complex number in the exercises 1 to 10 in the form a + ib : (1/3 + 3i)³

**Solution:**

The given complex number is,

(1/3 + 3i)³

= (1/3)³ + (3i)³ + 3(1/3) (3i) (1/3 + 3i) [∵ (a + b)^{3} = a^{3} + b^{3} + 3ab (a + b) ]

= 1/27 + 27i³ + (3i) (1/3 + 3i)

= 1/27 + 27(- i) + i + 9i² [∵ i³ = - i]

= 1/27 - 27i + i - 9 [∵ i² = - 1]

= (1/27 - 9) - 26i

= - 242/27 - i26
