# Thread: solve for z & a

1. ## solve for z & a

$\mid z \mid = 1$
$\mid a \mid < -1$

$\left|\frac{z-a}{1-\overline{a}z}\right|$

i tried:
$z = x + yi$
$a = a + bi$

$\left|\frac{z-a}{1-\overline{a}z}\right| =$
$= \left|\frac{x + yi - i(a + bi)}{1- (a - bi) (x + yi)}\right|$

and got nothing useful.. is there any other way? how do you solve this?

To solve...what? There's no equation here.
