**PRECALCULUS I Complex Numbers**

Real numbers + Imaginary numbers Dr. Claude S. Moore Danville Community College

2
Definition of The square root of a negative real number is not a real number. Thus, we introduce imaginary numbers by letting i = So i 2 = -1, i 3 = - i , and i 4 = +1.

3
**Example: Simplifying i n**

Since i 2 = -1, i 3 = - i , and i 4 = +1, a simplified answer should contain no exponent of i larger than 1. Example: i 21 = i 20 i 1 = (+1)( i ) = i Example: i 35 = i 32 i 3 = (+1)( - i ) = - i NOTE: 21/4 = 5 with r = 1 and 35/4 = 8 with r = 3.

4
**Definition of Complex Number**

For real numbers a and b, the number a + bi is a complex number. If a = 0 and b 0, the complex number bi is an imaginary number.

5
**Equality of Complex Numbers**

Two complex numbers a + bi and c + di, written in standard form, are equal to each other a + bi = c + di if and only if (iff) a = c and b = d.

6
**If (a + 7) + bi = 9 - 8i, find a and b. Since a + bi = c + di **

Example: Equality If (a + 7) + bi = 9 - 8i, find a and b. Since a + bi = c + di if and only if (iff) a = c and b = d, a + 7 = 9 and b = -8. Thus, a = 2 and b = -8.

7
**Addition & Subtraction: Complex Numbers**

Two complex numbers a + bi and c + di are added (or subtracted) by adding (or subtracting) real number parts and imaginary coefficients, respectively. (a + bi ) + (c + di ) = (a + c) + (b + d )i (a + bi ) - (c + di ) = (a - c) + (b - d )i

8
**Example: Addition & Subtraction**

(3 + 2i ) + (-7 - 5i ) = (3 + -7) + ( )I = i (-6 + 9i ) - (4 - 3i ) = (-6 - 4) + (9 + 3 )i = i

9
**Complex Conjugates Each complex number of the form a + bi**

has a conjugate of the form a - bi . NOTE: The product of a complex number and its conjugate is a real number. (a + bi )(a - bi ) = a2 + b2.

10
**Example: Complex Conjugates**

The conjugate of i is i The conjugate of 4 + 3i is 4 - 3i Recall: The product of a complex number and its conjugate is a real number. (a + bi )(a - bi ) = a2 + b2. (-5 + 6i )(-5 - 6i ) = (-5)2 + (6)2 = = 41

11
**Principal Square Root of Negative**

If a is a positive number, the principal square root of the negative number -a is defined as Example:

**PRECALCULUS I Fundamental Theorem of Algebra**

Dr. Claude S. Moore Danville Community College

13
**The Fundamental Theorem**

If f (x) is a polynomial of degree n, where n > 0, then f has at least one root (zero) in the complex number system.

14
**Linear Factorization Theorem**

If f (x) is a polynomial of degree n where n > 0, then f has precisely n linear factors in the complex number system.

15
**Linear Factorization continued**

where c1, c2, … , cn are complex numbers and an is leading coefficient of f(x).

16
**Complex Roots in Conjugate Pairs**

Let f(x) be a polynomial function with real number coefficients. If a + bi, where b 0, is a root of the f(x), the conjugate a - bi is also a root of f(x).

17
**Factors of a Polynomial**

Every polynomial of degree n > 0 with real coefficients can be written as the product of linear and quadratic factors with real coefficients where the quadratic factors have no real roots.

ASYMPTOTES VERTICAL LINE x = a if HORIZONTAL LINE y = b if

22
**ASYMPTOTES OF RATIONAL FUNCTIONS**

If q(x) = 0, x = a is VERTICAL. HORIZONTALS: If n < m, y = 0. If n = m, y = an/bm. NO HORIZONTAL: If n > m.

23
**SLANT ASYMPTOTES OF RATIONAL FUNCTIONS**

If n = m + 1, then slant asymptote is y = quotient when p(x) is divided by q(x) using long division.

24
**GUIDELINES FOR GRAPHING**

1. Find f(0) for y-intercept. 2. Solve p(x) = 0 to find x-intercepts. 3. Solve q(x) = 0 to find vertical asymptotes. 4. Find horizontal or slant asymptotes. 5. Plot one or more points between and beyond x-intercepts and vertical asymptote. 6. Draw smooth curves where appropriate.

25
IMPORTANT NOTES 1. Graph will not cross vertical asymptote. f(x) = 2x / (x - 2) When q(x) = 0, f(x) is undefined. 2. Graph may cross horizontal asymptote. f(x) = 5x / (x2 + 1) 3. Graph may cross slant asymptote. f(x) = x3 / (x2 + 2)

26
EXAMPLE 1 1. Graph will not cross vertical asymptote. f(x) = 2x / (x - 2) When q(x) = 0, f(x) is undefined. If q(x) = 0, x = a is VERTICAL asymptote. q(x) = x - 2 = 0 yields x = 2 V.A.

27
**1. Graph will not cross vertical asymptote.**

EXAMPLE 1: Graph 1. Graph will not cross vertical asymptote. VERTICAL asymptote: q(x) = x - 2 = 0 yields x = 2 V.A. Graph of f(x) = 2x / (x - 2)

28
EXAMPLE 2 2. Graph may cross horizontal asymptote. f(x) = 5x / (x2 + 1) If n < m, y = 0 is HORIZONTAL asymptote. Since n = 1 is less than m = 2, the graph of f(x) has y = 0 as H.A.

29
**2. Graph may cross horizontal asymptote.**

EXAMPLE 2: Graph 2. Graph may cross horizontal asymptote. If n < m, y = 0 is HORIZONTAL asymptote. Graph of f(x) = 5x / (x2 + 1)

32
EXAMPLE 3 continued 3. Graph may cross slant asymptote. f(x) = x3 / (x2 + 2) Since n = 3 is one more than m = 2, the graph of f(x) has a slant asymptote. Long division yields y = x as S.A.

33
