Solving equation in C

  1. Aug 24, 2016 #1
    in my homework i got a question that told me to solve the following equation in C
    can someone tell me what is this question? what is it means "to solve in C"? i know(if i am right) that C is the field of complex numbers but i don't realy gets what is going on with that question.

    i am not asking for a solution at all i just want to know what is it and where i can read about the subject of this question.

    I'm pretty sure it means to solve for z, with z being a complex number.

    Your textbook, for starters. Surely they must have an example of finding the complex roots in an equation.

    ... and it is a trick question. See if you can reduce the fraction (remember that i2 = -1).
