Before some examples, here are some easy results linking ourfunctions:a)z+z=2(z)andzz=2i(z)b)|z|=|z|andzz=|z|2c)z+w=z+wandzw=z·wd)1z=z|z|2e) Ifz=r ethenz=r e-f) Ifz=r eandw=s ethenzw=rs ei(θ+φ).They’re all too easy for me to need to prove: make sure youcan prove them all.MATH2069 Complex Notes,2016– p. 7Example 2Putiand22i
