I believe the format I need in order to solve this problem should be such that the real parts and imaginary parts are separated,
Then I can equate the real and imaginary parts of the equation and solve for x and y. I tried to multiply by the conjugate so that I would get a real number at the denominator.
Multiplied by conjugate:
And at this step I started to feel as if I made a mistake because I weren't sure how to proceed. Would someone let me know if my approach was correct and show me how to do this?
