Does have any real solutions? Why or why not? Does have any solutions? Complex Number:
, where and are real numbers and
is the real part and is the imaginary part

a. ( b. ( )( c. ( ) ) Solving equations containing complex numbers:
- group the real parts with the real parts and the imaginary parts with
the imaginary parts Example 5: For each of the following equations, identify the real parts
and the imaginary parts. Then find the values of and
)
a. ( b. ( ) Conjugate:
- writing the same two terms with the opposite operation (addition
changes to subtraction or vice versa)
Complex conjugate:
- writing a complex number with the same real and imaginary parts,
but with the opposite operation
Quotients of complex numbers:
- multiply the expression by ( ) - this can thought of as rationalizing the denominator (eliminate the
imaginary numbers from the denominator)
