What is an imaginary number?
It is a tool to solve an equation and was invented to solve quadratic equations of the form 𝒂 𝒙 𝟐 +𝒃𝒙+𝒄. . It has been used to solve equations for the last 200 years or so. “Imaginary” is just a name, imaginary do indeed exist; they are numbers.

The Imaginary Unit i 𝒊= −𝟏 𝒊 𝟐 =−𝟏
Previously, when we encountered square roots of negative numbers in solving equations, we would say “no real solution” or “not a real number”. 𝒊= −𝟏 𝒊 𝟐 =−𝟏

Complex Numbers & Imaginary Numbers
a + bi represents the set of complex numbers, where a and b are real numbers and i is the imaginary part. a + bi is the standard form of a complex number. The real number a is written first, followed by a real number b multiplied by i. The imaginary unit i always follows the real number b, unless b is a radical. Example: 2+3𝑖 If b is a radical, then write i before the radical. 𝑖 2

(5 − 11i) + (7 + 4i) Simplify and treat the i like a variable. = 5 − 11i i = (5 + 7) + (− 11i + 4i) = 12 − 7i Standard form

(− 5 + i) − (− 11 − 6i) = − 5 + i i = − i + 6i = i

Complex Conjugates The complex conjugate of the number a + bi is a − bi. Example: the complex conjugate of 𝟐+𝟒𝒊 is 𝟐−𝟒𝒊 The complex conjugate of the number a − bi is a + bi. Example: the complex conjugate of 3−𝟓𝒊 is 3+5𝒊

Complex Conjugates When we multiply the complex conjugates together, we get a real number. (a + bi) (a − bi) = a² + b² Example: 2+3𝑖 2−3𝑖 =4−9 𝑖 2 4−9 𝑖 2 =4−9 −1 =4+9 =13

Complex Conjugates When we multiply the complex conjugates together, we get a real number. (a − bi) (a + bi) = a² + b² Example: 2−5𝑖 2+5𝑖 =4−25 𝑖 2 4−25 𝑖 2 =4−25(−1) =4+25 =29

Using Complex Conjugates to Divide Complex Numbers
Divide and express the result in standard form: 7 + 4i 2 − 5i The complex conjugate of the denominator is 2 + 5i. Multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the complex conjugate.

Operations Involving Square Roots of Negative Numbers
See examples on page 282.

The complex-number system is used to find zeros of functions that are not real numbers.
When looking at a graph of a function, if the graph does not cross the x-axis, it has no real-number zeros.
