Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4right, the conjugate of 5+i is 5i now, go back to the original expression (6+i)/(5+i) multiplying the numerator and denominator by (5i) gives us [(5i)(6+i)] / [(5+i)(5i)] simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i checked it and it gave me the same thing for the denominator i^2+25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4right, there was a negative sign in front of i^2 that you missed before so we have (i^2+30+i)/(i^2+25) we can rewrite this if we recognize that i^2 = 1 can you try substituting 1 for i^2 into your expression now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So i would replace 1 with all the i^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4yes, whenever you see "i^2" you can replace it with 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4@Saiyan uh, small correction, I made a mistake with the numerator the numerator should be 30+ii^2, giving is (31+i)/(26), sorry > >
