### Example Question #3 : Complex Imaginary Numbers

Evaluate

You cannot divide by complex numbers

Explanation:

To divide by a complex number, we must transform the expression by multiplying it by the complex conjugate of the denominator over itself. In the problem,  is our denominator, so we will multiply the expression by  to obtain:

.

We can then combine like terms and rewrite all  terms as . Therefore, the expression becomes:
