5.3 Complex Numbers; Quadratic Equations with a Negative Discriminant

2
Complex numbers are numbers of the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers. The real number a is called the real part of the number a + bi; the real number b is called the imaginary part of a + bi.

3
(a + bi) + (c + di) = (a + c) + (b + d)i (2 + 4i) + (-1 + 6i) = (2 - 1) + (4 + 6)i = 1 + 10i Sum of Complex Numbers

4
(a + bi) - (c + di) = (a - c) + (b - d)i (3 + i) - (1 - 2i) = (3 - 1) + (1 - (-2))i = 2 + 3i Difference of Complex Numbers

5
Product of Complex Numbers

6
If z=a +bi is a complex number, then its conjugate, denoted by

7
Theorem The product of a complex number and its conjugate is a nonnegative real number. Thus if z=a +bi, then

8
Theorem

10
If N is a positive real number, we define the principal square root of -N as

11
In the complex number system, the solution of the quadratic equation where a, b, and c are real numbers and are given by the formula

12
Solve:

13
Discriminant of a Quadratic Equation is called a discriminant >0, there are 2 unequal real solutions. =0, there is a repeated real solution. <0, there are two complex solutions. The solutions are conjugates of each other.
