Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right 25i isn't 25(1) but 25i^2 is 25(1)=25 but where did you get 25i or 25i^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oooooh, no I get what you mean now. The denominator was 25i^2. So the final answer was/is 1313i  26 which simplified to: 1i/2 ?
