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

Complex Numbers A complex number is a number of the form where a and b are real numbers and i2 = –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. © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

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). © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

Square Root of a Negative Number

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

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). © 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 To be solved in class © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved

ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION OF COMPLEX NUMBERS
For all real numbers a, b, c, and d, let z = a + bi and w = c + di. © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. All rights reserved
