Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have to write the 1/(a+ib) as a sum of a real part and an imaginary part.

I was thinking of using the complex conjugate (a-ib) and multiply with this

(a-ib) / (a^2 + b^2)

I am a little bit lost on what to do next - any help appreciated thanks in advance
