let z be a complex number satisfying |z-3|=|z-4i|, then find the least possible value of 10|z|.

Joshi sir comment

In |z-3|=|z-4i|, z represents all points lying on the perpendicular bisector of the line joining 3 and 4i in x-y plane. In this perpendicular bisector, if we draw a perpendicular then it will be the minimum magnitude of z. Construct this as a diagram we will get

sinθ = |z| / (7/8)

or |z| = (7/8)(4/5) = 7/10 The number of roots of equations z15 = 1 and Iarg zI< π/2 is

Joshi sir comment

let z = r(cosθ+i sinθ) and it is given that z15 = 1  =>  r15(cosθ+i sinθ)15 = 1

or r15(cos15θ+i sin15θ) = 1+0i                   (Here we use Demoivre's theorem)

on comparison we get sin 15θ = 0 => 15θ = nπ          here n is an integer

for n = -7 to +7 we will get 15 answers for which θ will lie between -π/2 to +π/2
