I don't understand the notation of the equation. Why did you put (conj)? Does it mean take the conjugate of the term that follows it? Or multiply that term by its conjugate? Or what?

i dont know how to write a line above the letter for this

so for this question, there would be a line above the z and the 7+3i

it means to flip the sign of the imaginary part

So why don't you just write z  2z = 2 + 4i + (7  3i)? Is that what the question says?

iop360Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no, there is no line above the z+2z, just the z

Can you draw the question instead?

\(\bar{z} + 2z = 2 + 4i + \overline{7+3i} = 2 + 4i + 7  3i = 9 + i\)

answer is 3+i though...you seem to be on the right track though

unless you use fourier which i don't think you are

It's not my problem statement. You need to be on the right track. Where shall we go from here? \(\bar{z} + 2z = 9 + i\)

i dont know what the z part is. that is the problem

Please read the problem statement. "solve for z, and give your answer in the form a + bi" z is a Complex Number

You tried what? \(\bar{z} + 2z = a  bi + 2(a + bi) = a  bi + 2a + 2bi = (a + 2a) + (2bb)i\) Do yuo see where this is going?

i understand why you get this but why did you do this

you equate this to 9+i?

tkhunnyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
That is it! \(3a + bi = 9 + i\)
