Something nags at me that expanding the squares after squaring both sides is unnecessarily tedious.

if you write y= (1+i)z = sqrt(2)*exp(i*pi/4)*z,
then y describes the circle of center 2 and of radius 4

which means z describes the circle of center 2 and of radius 2sqrt(2)

also maybe I'm just saying shit so be careful.
>>
>>7775203
You definitely want to isolate the z so maybe do (1+i)z-2=(1+i)(z-(1-i))?

ok I don't understand why the first method is false, but you can do the same thing |z - 2/(1+i)| = 2sqrt(2) -> circle of radius 2sqrt(2) centered around 1-i
but I don't know why the first one doesn't work
>>
>>7775236
Well, you don't really explain what you're doing. You write it up right and then conclude that it's centered around 2.
>>
>>7775245
You have to be kidding
|y-2| = r is the circle of center 2 and radius r.

Ok so I found the mistake in
>>7775217
the set of points described by y is indeed the circle of center 2 and radius 4

to obtain z though, you have to take this set and multiply it by (1-i)/2 (since z = (1-i)y/2)

so this will rotate the circle around the origin (including the center).

In the end, you indeed find the center (1-i)*2/2 = (1-i) and the radius 2sqrt(2)
