Hello everybody, which is the best way to solve (z*  1/z)(z^2+8z*)=0 ? (z* is z conjugate) thank you

if the product equals zero then one or more of the factors must equal zero. Solve that for both factors. For example $z^*  \dfrac 1 z = 0$ $z^* = \dfrac 1 z = \dfrac {z^*}{z^2}$ so $z^2=1$ and thus this is satisfied for any point on the unit circle. You try the second factor.
