# complex number passing from $|z|^{2}$ to $|z|$

I really couldn't understand last part when they pass from $|z|^{2}$ to $|z|$ so any more explanation please?

 Perhaps $$z\overline z=|z|^2\Longleftrightarrow \frac{|z|^2}{z}=\overline z\,\,,\,\,z\neq 0\,\,\,?$$ – DonAntonio Jan 23 at 15:13 I'm looking for $|z|$ not $\overline z$ nor $z$ – pourjour Jan 23 at 15:18

Simply expand: $$\left(-a + \sqrt{a^2+4}\right)^2 = 2\left(a^2 + 2 - \sqrt{a^4+4a^2}\right)$$ If $|z|^2 > r^2$ it follows that $|z|>r$...
 I didn't get the point of expanding this expression. – pourjour Jan 23 at 15:21 @pourjour - the two expression are exactly the ones you need, are they not? – nbubis Jan 23 at 15:22 ok I get it thanks – pourjour Jan 23 at 15:25 Maybe clearer to write: $$\left(\frac{-a + \sqrt{a^2+4}}2\right)^2 = \left(\frac{a^2 + 2 - \sqrt{a^4+4a^2}}{2}\right)$$ – Thomas Andrews Jan 23 at 15:26 how about doing this by respecting the steps and not reversly? – pourjour Jan 23 at 15:26
