**What is an imaginary number?**

It is a tool to solve an equation and was invented to solve quadratic equations of the form π π π +ππ+π. . It has been used to solve equations for the last 200 years or so. βImaginaryβ is just a name, imaginary do indeed exist; they are numbers.

**The Imaginary Unit i π= βπ π π =βπ**

Previously, when we encountered square roots of negative numbers in solving equations, we would say βno real solutionβ or βnot a real numberβ. π= βπ π π =βπ

**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+3π If b is a radical, then write i before the radical. π 2

**Adding and Subtracting Complex Numbers**

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

**Adding and Subtracting Complex Numbers**

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

14
Complex Conjugates The complex conjugate of the number a + bi is a β bi. Example: the complex conjugate of π+ππ is πβππ The complex conjugate of the number a β bi is a + bi. Example: the complex conjugate of 3βππ is 3+5π

15
Complex Conjugates When we multiply the complex conjugates together, we get a real number. (a + bi) (a β bi) = aΒ² + bΒ² Example: 2+3π 2β3π =4β9 π 2 4β9 π 2 =4β9 β1 =4+9 =13

16
Complex Conjugates When we multiply the complex conjugates together, we get a real number. (a β bi) (a + bi) = aΒ² + bΒ² Example: 2β5π 2+5π =4β25 π 2 4β25 π 2 =4β25(β1) =4+25 =29

17
**Using Complex Conjugates to Divide Complex Numbers**

Divide and express the result in standard form: 7 + 4i 2 β 5i The complex conjugate of the denominator is 2 + 5i. Multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the complex conjugate.

**Roots of Negative Numbers**

β16 = β’ β1 i = β1 = 4 β’ i =ππ

21
**Operations Involving Square Roots of Negative Numbers**

See examples on page 282.

22
**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.
