## Homework Statement

Evaluate (find the real and complex components) of the following complex numbers, in either rectangular or polar form:

[itex]z_{1}[/itex] = [itex]\frac{j(3-j4)^{*}}{(-1+6j)(2+j)^{2}}[/itex]

## Homework Equations

[itex]e^{jθ}[/itex] = cosθ + j sinθ

## The Attempt at a Solution

I sadly don't even know where to begin here. I understand that my textbook uses j instead of i for imaginary number. I understand that a star superscript means the complex conjurgate so...

[itex]z_{1}[/itex] = [itex]\frac{j(3-j4)^{*}}{(-1+6j)(2+j)^{2}}[/itex] = [itex]\frac{j(j4-3)}{(-1+6j)(2+j)^{2}}[/itex]

Is this true? Where do I go from here thanks.

Just a note.

The prerequisite for this course was an introductory differential equations course, multivariable calculus and a second semester of physics, all of which I have taken. I still have no idea what half of this stuff is. I've never studied complex numbers before but dove into euler's formula and stuff of the like in high school out of curiosity. I however am not sure what a phasor is exactly but have some understand of the concept. Thanks for any help or suggestions on how to proceed to solve this problem thanks.
