MAT 111 - College Algebra Section 1.5 - Complex Numbers A complex number in standard form is a + bi . Two complex numbers a + bi and c + di are equal if and only if a = c and b = d . Operations with complex numbers: 1. Addition : ( a + bi ) + ( c + di ) = ( a + c ) + ( b + d ) i Example : (2 + 3 i ) + (1 - 5 i ) 2. Subtraction : ( a + bi ) - ( c + di ) = ( a - c ) + ( b - d ) i Example : (2 + 3 i ) - (1 - 5 i ) 3. Multiplication : Example : (2 + 3 i )(1 - 5 i ) Complex Conjugate :
