**Basic Concepts of Complex Numbers**

There is no real number solution of the equation since no real number, when squared, gives To extend the real number system to include solutions of equations of this type, the number i is defined to have the following property.

4
**Basic Concepts of Complex Numbers**

If a and b are real numbers, then any number of the form a + bi is a complex number. In the complex number a + bi , a is the real part and b is the imaginary part.

5
**Basic Concepts of Complex Numbers**

Two complex numbers a + bi and c + di are equal provided that their real parts are equal and their imaginary parts are equal; that is if and only if and

6
**Basic Concepts of Complex Numbers**

For complex number a + bi, if b = 0, then a + bi = a. Thus, the set of real numbers is a subset of the set of complex numbers.

7
**Basic Concepts of Complex Numbers**

If a = 0 and b ≠ 0, the complex number is said to be a pure imaginary number. A pure imaginary number, or a number like 7 + 2i with a ≠ 0 and b ≠ 0, is a nonreal complex number. A complex number written in the form a + bi (or a + ib) is in standard form.

**Example 5(c) showed that**

The numbers 6 + 5i and 6 – 5i differ only in the sign of their imaginary parts and are called complex conjugates. The product of a complex number and its conjugate is always a real number. This product is the sum of the squares of real and imaginary parts.

**Simplifying Powers of i**

Powers of i can be simplified using the facts

38
Powers of i and so on.

39
Powers of i cycle through the same four outcomes (i, –1, –i, and 1) since i4 has the same multiplicative property as 1. Also, any power of i with an exponent that is a multiple of 4 has value 1. As with real numbers, i0 = 1.
