Operations with Complex Numbers

Remember … Simplify: 1. 2x + 3y – x + y = x + 4y 2. (x + 3)(x – 3)
= x2 – 3x + 3x - 9 = x2 – 9 3. ( ) 4. i2 Aim: Add, subtract, multiply and/or divide complex numbers in order to simplify.

adding polynomials. Find the sum of 4 + 2i and 2 – 5i. Keep the real numbers together, keep the imaginary numbers together. Aim: Add, subtract, multiply and/or divide complex numbers in order to simplify.

Graph 4 + 2i i 6 - 3i Aim: Add, subtract, multiply and/or divide complex numbers in order to simplify.
