please show some ideas or work that you tried for the others

let the two numbers be a+bi and a-bi

then (a+bi)(a-bi)= 10

a^2 - b^2i^2 = 10

a^2 + b^2 = 10 .... because i^2 = -1

let a=1, then b^2 = 9

b = 3 or b= -3

so let's pick a=1 and b-3

two complex numbers whose product are 10 are

1 + 3i and 1-3i
