Prove that if wz = 0, then w = 0 or z = 0. w and z are two complex numbers.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I said that w = a + bi and z = c + di and set wz = 0. I got down to c(a+b) = d(b-a), but don't know where to go from here.

I'm trying to teach myself complex analysis, anyone know any good sources? I took the 3 calculus classes and an elementary differential equations class. I'm a mechanical engineering major though and I don't think I'll have time to take a complex analysis class unless I want to stay in college after I get my BS in ME.
