 Question 149761: Please can someone help me with this problem: For i= -1, 3i(2+5i)= x+6i,then x=? This is how i tried to solve the problem: 3ix2=6i,and 3ix5i=15i,now i combine 6i+ 15i = x + 6i, I broke down the problem by adding 6i + 15i= 21i=x+6i, then i made the 21i negative on both sides: 21i = x + 6i -21i -21i= -15, is this correct?
