OBJECTIVES © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved 1 Complex Numbers Define complex numbers. Add and subtract complex numbers. Multiply complex numbers. Divide complex numbers. SECTION

2
The square root of 1 is called i. Definition of i The number i is called the imaginary unit. 2 © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

3
A complex number is a number of the form Complex Numbers where a and b are real numbers and i 2 = –1. The number a is called the real part of z, and we write Re(z) = a. The number b is called the imaginary part of z and we write Im(z) = b. 3 © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

4
Definitions A complex number z written in the form a + bi is said to be in standard form. A complex number with a = 0 and b 0, written as bi, is called a pure imaginary number. If b = 0, then the complex number a + bi is a real number. Real numbers form a subset of complex numbers (with imaginary part 0). 4 © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

EXAMPLE 1 Identifying the Real and the Imaginary Parts of a Complex Number Identify the real and the imaginary parts of each complex number. 6 © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved To be discussed in class

7
Equality of Complex Numbers Two complex numbers z = a + bi and w = c + di are equal if and only if a = c and b = d That is, z = w if and only if Re(z) = Re(w) and Im(z) = Im(w). 7 © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

EXAMPLE 2 Equality of Complex Numbers Find a and b assuming that (1 – 2a) + 3i = 5 – (2b – 5)i. Solution 8 © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved To be solved in class
