Hey everyone!

I am updating this very early. To Blueeighthnote: Either I stumped you, or you forgot. I hope I stumped you. I told my cousin that you were a genius, and she gave me that question to stump you.

## Everyone except for Imamadmad and Emmaelise401

What is the answer to the very first question of the day?

## Previous Solution

Looking in the complex plane, we see that b+11i is the 60 degree rotation of a+5i. Thus: (a+5i)(cis 60) = b+11i.

Equating real and imaginary parts and solving he resulting system gives a=±17/sqrt 3 and b= ±1/sqrt 3. Multiplying them results in ab=17/3.

Credits to my cousin who found that question.
