## To verify if -2iā2 is a solution to the equation x = 8, we substitute the value into the equation and check if the resulting expression is true:

x = 8

(-2iā2)^2 = 8

First, we square -2iā2. Since squaring a complex number involves squaring both the real and imaginary components, we can simplify as follows:

(-2iā2)^2 = (-2)^2 * (i^2) * (ā2)^2

=(-2)^2 * (-1) * 2

= 4 * (-1) * 2

= -8

The result of (-2iā2)^2 is -8, which is not equal to 8. Therefore, -2iā2 is not a solution to the equation x = 8.
