It would be great if you guys could correct my mistakes if any are made, Thank you. So we have two complex numbers, $z_1= (1+\sqrt{3})^{m}$and $z_2=(1-i)^{n}$ the modulus of $z_1$ is $2^{m}$ and the modulus of $z_2= 2^{\frac{n}{2}}$ the argument of $z_1= \frac{m\pi}{3}$ and the argument of$z_2= \frac{-n\pi}{4}$ hence find the smallest positive integer m,n for $z_1=z_2$ since 0 is an integer, the smallest m and n is 0.

The arguments were nearly right. If the complex numbers are equal, m needs to be a multiple of 3. What else is needed?
