### Proof Using Complex Variables

To show by means of*phasor analysis*that Eq.(A.2) always has a solution, we can express each component sinusoid as

re

Equation (A.2) therefore becomes
Since is just the polar representation of a complex number, there is always some value of and such that equals whatever complex number results on the right-hand side of Eq.(A.5). As is often the case, we see that the use of Euler's identity and complex analysis gives a simplified

*algebraic*proof which replaces a proof based on trigonometric identities.
