## It’s complex feeling!

Example.

If $z_{1}, z_{2}, z_{3}$ are complex numbers such that

$|z_{1}|=|z_{2}|=|z_{3}|=|\frac{1}{z_{1}}+\frac{1}{z_{2}}+\frac{1}{z_{3}}|=1$, then $|z_{1}+z_{2}+z_{3}|$ is

(a)  equal to 1

(b) less than 1

(c) greater than 3

(d) equal to 3

Solution:

Since $|z_{1}|=|z_{2}|=|z_{3}|=1$, we get $z_{1} \overline{z_{1}}=z_{2} \overline{z_{2}}=z_{3} \overline{z_{3}}=1$

Now, $1=|\frac{1}{z_{1}}+\frac{1}{z_{2}}+\frac{1}{z_{3}}|=|\overline{z_{1}}+\overline{z_{2}}+\overline{z_{3}}|=|\overline{z_{1}+z_{2}+z_{3}}|$

$\Longrightarrow 1 = |z_{1}+z_{2}+z_{3}|$
