1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Solve the equations: 3(z-2) = 2j(2z+1) and (i-2)z-z*=3i+1 where z* is the complex conjugate of z. (I am assuming z and z* are the unknowns. i and j are basically the same since they're defined as i2 = j2 = -1?) 2. Relevant equations Rules for solving regular equations? 3. The attempt at a solution 3(z-2) = 2j(2z+1) 3z - 6 = 4zj + 2j 3z - 4zj = 2j + 6 How do I proceed from here? I want to multiply every number with j to do j2 = -1, but then I'm left with 3zj + 4z = 6j - 2 which basically gets me nowhere. 2nd equation: (i-2)z-z*=3i+1 zi - 2z - z* = 3i +1 Same problem here. Want to multiply each number by i, but then I'm left with -2zi -z -z*i = 1 - 3 I'm using the same rules as I'm using at single equations with one unknown and the same rules as two equations two unknowns in "normal" algebra. I want to proceed with z = something in my first equation and put that into equation 2 and solve. Any ideas, guidelines or input would be very much appreciated.
