Need help with complex numbers and locus

part1. Let z=rcisθ where 0<θ<pi. show that Arg(z^2)=2θ.
part2. sketch the region defined by {z: Arg(z^2)>pi/2}
in the answers it shows region pi/4 to pi/2 and region 5pi/8 to 3pi/2 should be shaded which I dont understand why these regions must be shaded.
Thanks for the help in advance

Hi thanks for the answer, that was very helpful. can you help with part 2?


Kenneth S.

I can see that if theta is in (0,pi) and arg (z2) = 2θ then 2θ > pi/2 means θ > pi/4.
That's about it for me.
