Points on circle argand diagram

I have 3 points in my diagram which are the solutions z^3=2+2i. The solutions ( correct ) are 2^0.5e(Pi/12)i, 2^0.5e(9Pi/12)i and 2^0.5e(-7Pi/12)i.

Please see the last part of the whole question and if possible help explain it to me - Many thanks

The three roots determine a circle. The circle is centered at the origin of the complex plane and has a radius of $\displaystyle \sqrt{2}$, so the expression is the sum of the differences between a point on the circle and each of the three roots. This should have a magnitude of 6, for all points on the circle.
