=> 2x – 3xi + 2yi – 3yi

^{2}= 4 + i=> 2x + (–3x+2y)i + 3y = 4 + i

=> (2x+3y) + i(–3x+2y) = 4 + i

On comparing real and imaginary parts on both sides, we get,

2x + 3y = 4 . . . . (1)

And –3x + 2y = 1 . . . . (2)

On multiplying (1) by 3 and (2) by 2 and adding, we get

On comparing real and imaginary parts on both sides, we get,

=> 3x = 70/25 and –2y = –10/25
