# If α and β are different complex numbers with |β| = 1, then find |(β -α)/(1 - α'β)|

**Solution:**

For any complex number z, z z' = |z|^{2}.

It is given that |β| = 1.

Then

|β|^{2} = ββ' = 1

Now, |(β -α)/(1 - α'β)| = |(β -α)/(ββ' - α'β)| [because 1 = ββ']

= |β - α| / |β| |β' - α'|

= |β - α| / 1 |β' - α'| [because |β| = 1]

= |β - α| / | (β - α)' |

= 1 (because |z| = |z'|, for any complex number z)

Therefore, |(β -α)/(1 - α'β)| = 1
