(a) As $u  v$ is constant $\partial u/\partial x = \partial v/\partial x$ and $\partial u/\partial y = \partial v/\partial y$. As the CauchyRiemann equations also hold, it's easily deduced that all the partial derivatives are zero, which implies that $f$ is constant. Can you now make progress with (b) by using the hint provided?
