Dear Rachneet Kaur,

Solution:- By rotation theorem of complex no.'s, ((z3 - z1) / (z2 - z1)) = ( |z3 - z1| / |z2 - z1| )e^i(pi/3)

[Refer Rotation Theorem from ]

Since ABC is an equilateral triangle, |z3 - z1| = |z2 - z1|

So, we get ((z3 - z1) / (z2 - z1)) = e^i(pi/3)

or, (z3 - z1) = e^i(pi/3) (z2 - z1)

or, z3 = z2 e^i(pi/3) + z1 (1-e^i(pi/3))

or, z3 = z2 e^i(pi/3) + z1 (1/2 - i (sqrt(3)/2))

or, z3 = z2 e^i(pi/3) + z1 e^-i(pi/3)

Hence Proved.
