    \((x-(a+bi))(x-(a-bi))=x^2-2ax+(a^2+b^2)\) So, we get that this quadratic equation has a root \(x=a+bi\). So as \(a\) and \(b\) are any real numbers we prove it for any complex number.

    What' remarkable in @klimenkov is that his coefficients are REAL

    Oh k so there is a mistake. That is : Where is quadratic equation @klimenkov ? it must have been : \[\large{(X-(a+ib))(X-(a+ib))=\color{blue}{0}}\]

    1) Equation \(x^2-2ax+(a^2+b^2)\) is QUADRATIC. 2) Equation \(x^2-2ax+(a^2+b^2)\) has a root \(x=a+bi\). 3) \(a+bi\) is any complex numer for \(a\in \mathbb R, b \in \mathbb R\).

    Try to multiply carefully, there is no mistake.

    @klimenkov I was saying that, you didn't include 0 in RHS, why so?

    Ah.. I'm really sorry. You are absolutely right. It was not an equation. It was just a polynomial.

    But if you have no need in real coefficients, you can just make an equation \((x-(a+bi))^2=0\)

    @wwaterineyes besides Mathematics. I meant what level of Mathematics is this because this certainly doesn't look like calculus or any lower level math question.
