Find all complex numbers \(z\) such that \(|z - 3| = |z+i| = |z -3i|\). Please help solve asap! Its ok if u dont have an explanation.

Hi somebody,

If any of my complex number questions prove to be wrong (or you have reason to question my answers) can you please let me know. :)

 

Find all complex numbers  z such that

|z - 3| = |z+i| = |z -3i|

 

\(let\;z=a+bi\\ |(a-3)+bi|=|a+(b+1)i|=|a+(b-3)i|\\ (a-3)^2+b^2=a^2+(b+1)^2=a^2+(b-3)^2\\ a^2-6a+9+b^2=a^2+b^2+2b+1=a^2+b^2-6b+9\\ -6a+9=2b+1=-6b+9\\~\\ 2b+1=-6b+9\\\\ 8b=8\\ b=1\\~\\ -6a+9=3\\ -6a=-6\\ a=1 \)

 

So I get     

 

\(z=1+i\)

Yes, I'm pretty sure that is right. Thank you sooo much tho!!! i finally figured out that u have to substitute z = a+bi. THanks again!!!
