Precollege Mathematics

## Try with Hints

Simplify the Complex. Just Solve.

Let $z = x+iy, \bar{z} = x-iy$ Then the given equation reduces to $(13x-9y+100)+i(5x-7y) = 0$.
Which implies $13x-9y+100 = 0, 5x-7y = 0$.
They do intersect.(?)

Yes! they intersect and to get the point of intersection just use substitution . Hence it gives a pair of intersecting straight lines.
