I'm just having a problem with a step that's part of a larger problem. Specifically, if I have:

[itex]\sqrt{2}i\leq\sqrt{2}[/itex]

I'm not sure what this actually means. If I ignore the i, each side is the same distance from the origin if I imagine both points on a graph, implying that both sides are equal. But I don't know whether this is a correct interpretation.
