Can anyone help me with these..?!

1) 3i/2+5i

and...

2) square root of -2(square root of -9 - square root of 7)

i would appreicate it if you can reply asap.

P.S: only reply if u KNOW the answer...thanks.

Multiply the top and bottom by the complex conjugate of the bottom:

$\displaystyle \frac{3i}{2+5i} = \frac{3i (2-5i)}{(2+5i)(2-5i)}$,

so:

$\displaystyle \frac{3i}{2+5i} = \frac{15+6i}{29}=\frac{15}{29}+\frac{6i}{29}$.

I will assume that you mean the latter of these, then:

$\displaystyle \sqrt{-2}(\sqrt{-9}-\sqrt{7})=\sqrt{2}i(3i-\sqrt{7})$

so:

$\displaystyle \sqrt{-2}(\sqrt{-9}-\sqrt{7})=-3\sqrt{2}-\sqrt{14}i$
