Hi,

I'm wondering how to solve equations such as the following:

I tried replacing z with (x+yi) and with (x-yi) but that just gave me two unknowns.

My textbook has something similar in one of the exercises but no examples for it.

Thanks

Ahh I got that far and didn't see it like that. Sort of like equating coefficients.
