## Precalculus (6th Edition)

Simplify the left side of the equation. Subtract each term of the subtrahend to obtain: $-2+7i-10-(-6i) \\=-2+7i-10+6i$ Combine like terms to obtain: $=(-2-10) + (7i+6i) \\=-12+13i$ The expression above is not equal to the right side of the given equation. Thus, the given statement is false.
