$|z|=1$ see graph below .

Work Step by Step

See p. 602, Graphing Complex Numbers The complex plane is determined by the real axis and the imaginary axis. To graph the complex number a + bi, we plot the ordered pair of numbers (a,b) in this plane See p. 603, The modulus (or absolute value) of the complex number $z=a+bi$ is $|z|=\sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}}$ ---------- Write z in the form a+bi: $z=\displaystyle \frac{-\sqrt{2}}{2}+\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}i$ Plot $(a,b)=(-\displaystyle \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2},\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2})$ in the complex plane (see image, $\displaystyle \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\approx 0.707$). $|z|=\sqrt{(-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2})^{2}+(\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2})^{2}}=\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{2}}=1$
