$z^2 + 2z  i \sqrt{3} = 0$ complete the square $(z+1)^2  1  i\sqrt{3} = 0$ $(z+1)^2 = 1+i\sqrt{3}$ $z+1 = \pm \sqrt{1+i\sqrt{3}}$ $z = 1 \pm \sqrt{1+i\sqrt{3}}$ Now we need to deal with the radical. $1+i\sqrt{3} = 2e^{i\pi/3}$ $\sqrt{1+i\sqrt{3}} = \sqrt{2}e^{i\pi/6} = \sqrt{\dfrac 3 2 }+\dfrac{i}{\sqrt{2}}$ so $z = 1 + \sqrt{\dfrac 3 2 }+\dfrac{i}{\sqrt{2}}$ $z = 1  \sqrt{\dfrac 3 2 }\dfrac{i}{\sqrt{2}}$
