If it is, then the inequality holds, otherwise we need to investigate further. Therefore, assuming that the left side is nonnegative, we again square both sides: ←→ x2 u2 + y 2 v 2 + 2xuyv ≤ x2 u2 + x2 v 2 + y 2 u2 + y 2 v 2 ←→ 0 ≤ x v + y u − 2xuyv ←→ 0 ≤ (xv − yu) ←→ 0 ≤ |xv − yu| (always true) That is, |z + w| ≤ |z | + |w| if and only if 0 ≤ |xv − yu| , so |z + w| ≤ |z | + |w| holds. Note: |xv − yu| = | (¯w)| = | (z w)| z ¯ b) First, we rewrite the triangle inequality: |a + b| − |a| ≤ |b| Therefore, a + b ≡ z and a ≡ w −→ |z | − |w| ≤ |z − w| (see Figure 3 for interpretation) a + b ≡ z and a ≡ −w −→ |z | − |w| ≤ |z + w| (see Figure 3 for interpretation) (35) (36) (34) 2 22 22 (30) (31) (32) (33) Problem 4 (10 points) Find all the roots of sin z = −i. 5 z+w z-w z w Figure 3: We can associate vectors to the various complex quantities. Thus, |z | − |w| ≤ |z − w| states that the diﬀerence in the lengths of z and w cannot be larger than the length of z − w; equality is reached when z and w are parallel (i.e., Arg(z ) = Arg(w)) and |w| ≤ |z |. |z | − |w| ≤ |z + w| can be similarly seen (imagine the head of w connected to the tail of z ), with equalit...
