    Complex number in Denominator

    If I convert the denominator as given in the problem I end up with: i r^2 sin(x)+r^2 (-cos(x))+1 I don't see how I can make a conjugate with 3 variables here? Am I missing something? I have went over this several times in attempt to make sure I hadn't made a mistake......
