1.3 Complex Number System

Complex Numbers Numbers of the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers and i is the imaginary unit.

Change (– ) to (+) of the opposite Apply the Distributive Property Combine all like terms Write your answer in the form of a + bi

Simplify each expression in standard form

Multiplying Complex Numbers
FOIL Method for multiplying binomials Distributive Property for all other polynomials Follow your rules of exponents Combine all like terms Write your answer in the form of a + bi

Simplify each expression in standard form

Conjugate

The conjugate of the conjugate of a complex number is the complex number itself.
The conjugate of the sum of two complex numbers equals the sum of their conjugates. The conjugate of the product of two complex numbers equals the product of their conjugates.

Simplify using Conjugates

Dividing Complex Numbers
You cannot have an i in the denominator Multiply numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the denominator FOIL Method for multiplying binomials Follow your rules of exponents Combine all like terms Write your answer in the form of a + bi
