I can help you find p & q
we need to find the imaginary part of multiply through by the complex conjugate.
Hi! I am trying to study for my final and am really stuck on a problem. I'm not really sure how to start this one off--
A line goes through the point (p,q) where p satisfies (1/p - 2/3) over (1/4-1/3) = 7 and q is the imaginary part of 2-3i over 4+5i. The slope of the line is the extraneous solution to x + the square root of (x+1)=5. Find an equation for the line (No caculator approximations. Do exact work)
Thank you in advance for your help... this is kind of a tough one!
Woah.... I never would have gotten that far! Thank you so much for getting me started. This may sound like a dumb question, but when it says find an equation for the line- does that mean in y=mx+b formula. I just don't understand where p and q fit in or how you can have a slope that is an extraneous solution... this final is going to get me
Thanks for the help!
Without seeing the actual question or knowing the context it was asked in I would assume that the line does have the model
And we now have the following information (assuming its correct!)
Substituting these into your model we can solve for b and then have the equation.
so the linear model is
or in context of the problem
