I'm having a bit problem solving the following equation: c * conjugate(z) = i where c = 3 + 5i and z is a complex number (a + bi) I tried following conjugate(z) = i/c But have no idea how to remove the conjugate from z. Any ideas?

Any ideas? The conjugate of the conjugate of z is z itself. So what is the conjugate of i/c? -Dan

Oh, thanks so much, i really need to practice more...
