1. Homework Statement

pg 244 of "Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering" by Riley and Hobson says that given the following two properties of the inner product

It follows that:

**2. Attempt at a solution.**

I think that both of these solutions are valid...but even if they are valid, is there a simpler and more intuitive way to derive these properties of inner products for a complex vector space from i and ii?
