# Express the Following Complex Number in the Standard Form a + I B: 3 + 2 I − 2 + I - Mathematics

Express the following complex number in the standard form a + i b:

$\frac{3 + 2i}{- 2 + i}$

#### Solution

$\frac{3 + 2i}{- 2 + i}$

$= \frac{3 + 2i}{- 2 + i} \times \frac{- 2 - i}{- 2 - i}$

$= \frac{- 6 - 3i - 4i - 2 i^2}{4 - i^2} \left( \because i^2 = - 1 \right)$

$= \frac{- 6 - 7i + 2}{4 + 1}$

$= \frac{- 4 - 7i}{5}$

$= \frac{- 4}{5} - \frac{7}{5}i$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
