1. ## Alg2/trig help

1. One root of a quadratic equation is 3+2i. Determine the other root and write the equation that has these values as its roots.

2. Solve for x in simplest a+bi form: 4x-4 = - 17/x

Any help would be appreciated please show steps.

The complex conjugate $a-bi$ will be the other root. Now you have both roots, expand them out the find the original equation.

multiplying your equation through by x will give you

$4x^2-4x+17= 0$

now solve using the quadratic formula.
