Question

Let z = 8 – 3i, and z2 = a + bi. What are the values of a and b?

1 Answer

  • The values of a and b from the given complex numbers is 8 and -3 respectively.

    The standard form of representing complex number is expressed as z = x + iy

    Given the complex numbers z = 8 – 3i, and z2 = a + bi

    To get the values of a and b, we need to compare both expressions as shown:

    For the real part;

    a = 8

    For the imaginary part:

    -3i = bi

    -3 = b

    Swap

    b = -3

    Hence the values of a and b from the given complex numbers is 8 and -3 respectively.
