    multiply and divide by -2root3-2i

    or take -2i common from numerator. u get -2i(2i-2root 3) in numerator. so what gets cancelled?

    owh.. -2i will remain??and the factor will cancel out the denominator?

    i hate it when that "i" is in my solution .. :D i'll try solving it

    the denominator will be 8? but i have a difficulty in solving the numerator :((

    my bad.. i believe the numerator should be 18?? 12-4i^2 = 12-4(-1) = 12+4= 16?

    \[(-2\sqrt{3}+2i)(-2\sqrt{3}-2i) = (-2\sqrt{3})^{2}-4i ^{2}=12-4(-1)=16\]

    if i simplified my numerator, -16root3 - 16i and divide that by 16 -root3 -i is my answer correct?
