I was doing homework from by Complex Variables class, and there was one question that stumped me:
Source: Fundamentals of Complex Analysis for Mathematics, Science and Engineering, 2nd Ed. by Saff and SniderWrite the complex equation as two real equations.
I don't "see" how I can rewrite this as two real equations. I looked through the section in my text, and it said absolutely nothing regarding this.
Instead of you working out the question for me, I would appreciate some tips on how to do problems like these.
Thank you in advance.
That's what I thought...
Ah...I think I thought of that...and then disregarded it. I'll try it out and ask my professor tomorrow.i suppose this is what they are after: write , say
your two real equations come from equating the real and imaginary parts (one equation for the real part, one for the imaginary)
Thank you
i don't think they want you to solve or factorize anything here. just expand and group the like parts (the ones with i and the ones without). no carrying anything over the equal sign or nothing. just describing what you see without the use of z. i don't see what else they could mean by the way the question is phrased.
