If z2 <= 6 find the greatest value of zi . I started like this: Let z = x + iy z2 <= 6 represents all the points inside the circle and on the circumference of the circle (x2)^2 + y^2 = 36 i.e a circle having center at (2,0) and radius = 6. How to relate to zi? Could someone give me a clue? Last edited by skipjack; March 12th, 2019 at 04:06 AM.

Starting from the point (0, 1) (representing i), draw a straight line segment that passes through the point P(2, 0) and meets the circle's circumference at point Q. As PQ = 6, what is the answer?

I do not know the answer . So what should represent the greatest value of zi from the above?

The distance from (0, 1) to Q, which is the sum of the distance from (0, 1) to P(2, 0) and the distance from P to Q.

Got it . So max  z i = 11. Many thanks
