    so we square everything inside the parentheses. to get -4

  28. anikay Group Title

    because -1^2 = 1 and i^2 = -1 and sqrt(5)^2 = 5 right?

    ok we get 1 next we mutiply \[-1*i \sqrt{5}\]

    then the last, which is \[i \sqrt{5}*i \sqrt{5}\]

    so all together, we get\[1- i \sqrt{5} - i \sqrt{5} - 5\] which simplifies to \[-4 -2i \sqrt{5}\]
