2 Copyright © 2011 Pearson, Inc. Slide P What youll learn about Complex Numbers Operations with Complex Numbers Complex Conjugates and Division Complex Solutions of Quadratic Equations … and why The zeros of polynomials are complex numbers.

3 Copyright © 2011 Pearson, Inc. Slide P Complex Number A complex number is any number that can be written in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers. The real number a is the real part, the real number b is the imaginary part, and a + bi is the standard form.

4 Copyright © 2011 Pearson, Inc. Slide P Addition and Subtraction of Complex Numbers If a + bi and c + di are two complex numbers, then Sum: (a + bi ) + (c + di ) = (a + c) + (b + d)i, Difference: (a + bi ) – (c + di ) = (a – c) + (b –d)i.
