So, I need help with this problem guys. Here it goes... The real and imaginary parts of the complex number $\displaystyle z=x+iy$ satisfy the equation $\displaystyle \left( 2i \right) x\left( 1+3i \right) y7=0$. Find the value of x and the value of y.  ** Thanks in advance. Please leave your workings, I'd appreciate it.

The equation is equivalent to $2x  y  7  (x + 3y)i = 0$, so $2x  y  7 = x + 3y = 0$. It follows that $(x,\,y) = (3,\,1)$.

I see, so the idea was to set up a simultaneous equation. It was the first problem like it in the textbook. Cheers.
