    given that z=x+iy find the value of x and the value of y such that z+3iz*=-1+31i

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Just substitute for z. evaluate, and then equate real parts and equate imaginary parts to get two equations in x and y.

    Note: z* is x-iy, the conjugate.

    There's another part in this question further on. Find the modulus of ZW (Not sure how to get modulus on the keyboard) Z=-24-7i W=2-2root3 (Also not sure how to get root signs).

    Could you work this out? I got 48+48root3i+14i+7root3 but it seems way off.
    Thanks

    That's a bit of a beast.

    First thing to note is |zw| = |z| |w|

    So, work out the modulus of z, then the modulus of w, and multiply the two.

    Ans in spoiler.

    25 x 4 = 100.



    PS:
    Best to post in the maths subforum, rather than this umbrella forum - lot more maths people there.

    Ok thanks, I will do. Realised how i completely flunked that last question. The |Z| Is root 24^2+7+2 and then the |W| is root 2^2+2root3^2
