[00:00:00] help

Sean D (Tutor)
[00:00:11] hello welcome to tutor.com

Sophie (Customer)
[00:01:18] I need help solving for x and y

Sean D (Tutor)
[00:01:46] is there any other information that goes with this problem

Sophie (Customer)
[00:02:08] The instructions just say to solve for x and y

Sean D (Tutor)
[00:02:30] ok is i the imaginary number

Sophie (Customer)
[00:02:47] yes

Sean D (Tutor)
[00:03:32] ok well the first thing we want to do is get rid of those parentheses.
[00:03:56] in order to do that we need to multiply i to (3y +2)

Sophie (Customer)
[00:04:12] Wait, could I use this rule..
[00:04:49] a+bi = c+di if and only if a=c and b=d?

Sean D (Tutor)
[00:05:13] oh yes! you most certainly can
[00:05:21] that is actually a better way to do it

Sophie (Customer)
[00:05:28] Oh, okay
