# Why is this statement not compiling correctly?

For some reason, the following excerpt from my code is not compiling correctly and I can't figure out why.

    \begin{equation}
\begin{split}
\frac{100}{-6} &= -16(-6) + 4\\
&\implies z^100 = z^4\\
\\
z^4 &= \left(e^{\frac{-i\pi}{3}\right)^4 \\
&=e^{\frac{-4\pi}{3}} \\
\\
&\cos\left(\frac{-4\pi}{3}\right) = -\frac{1}{2}, ~\sin\left(\frac{-4\pi}{3}\right) = \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2} \\
&\implies z = -\frac{1}{2} + \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2} i \\
\end{split}
\end{equation}


The error I get is that paragraph ended before split was complete and that a missing endgroup has been inserted. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. – Reinstate Monica - M. Schröder Feb 15 '14 at 13:52

You are missing a closing brace in line z^4:
