# It's complicated

Algebra Level 5

$a+\frac{a+8b}{a^{2}+b^{2}}=2 \text{ and } b+\frac{8a -b}{a^{2}+b^{2}}=0.$

Give the sum of the elements in all ordered pairs of real numbers $$(a, b)$$ such that the two equations above are satisfied.

Hint: Sometimes, you have to make the problem more complex to solve it.
