The rectangular form is $\frac{\sqrt{6}}{2}$ $- \frac{\sqrt{6}}{2} i$

Work Step by Step

$\sqrt{3}$ $cis$ $315^\circ$ = $\sqrt{3}$ $(cos 315^\circ$ + $isin 315^\circ)$ = $\sqrt{3} \cdot \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}$ + $\sqrt{3} \cdot i \cdot (- \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2})$ = $\frac{\sqrt{6}}{2}$ $- \frac{\sqrt{6}}{2} i$ The rectangular form is $\frac{\sqrt{6}}{2}$ $- \frac{\sqrt{6}}{2} i$
