# 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 '13 at 15:13
I'm looking for $|z|$ not $\overline z$ nor $z$ –  pourjour Jan 23 '13 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 $|z|>r$...
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 '13 at 15:26
