(5 - 9i)(5 - 2i)

----------------

(5 + 2i)(5 - 2i)

25 - 55i + 18i^2

----------------

25 - 4i^2

Remember that i^2 = -1

25 - 55i + 18(-1)

-----------------

25 - 4(-1)

25 - 55i - 18

-------------

25 + 4

7 - 55i

-------

29

You can change this to standard form if asked to do so.

I hope this helps.
