Complex numbers are numbers of the form a + bi , where a and b are real numbers. The real number a is called the real part of the number a + bi ; the real number b is called the imaginary part of a + bi .
( a + bi ) + ( c + di ) = ( a + c ) + ( b + d ) i (2 + 4 i ) + (-1 + 6 i ) = (2 - 1) + (4 + 6) i = 1 + 10 i Sum of Complex Numbers

Unformatted text preview: conjugate is a nonnegative real number. Thus if z=a +bi , then Theorem If N is a positive real number, we define the principal square root of -N as In the complex number system, the solution of the quadratic equation where a, b, and c are real numbers and are given by the formula Solve: Discriminant of a Quadratic Equation is called a discriminant >0, there are 2 unequal real solutions. =0, there is a repeated real solution. <0, there are two complex solutions. The solutions are conjugates of each other....
