## Complex conjugate of a derivative wrt z

First post!

Is it true that for a complex function f(${z}$,$\overline{z}$)

$\overline{\frac{∂f}{∂z}}$ =$\frac{∂\overline{f}}{∂\overline{z}}$

I think I proved this while trying to solve a problem. If it turns out it's not true and I've made a mistake, I'll upload my 'proof' and have the mistakes pointed out :)

Thanks

That would be alright, because f*=z, so ∂(f*)/∂(z*) =0, so the formula works for this function
