5.4 Complex Numbers Until now, you have always been told that you can’t take the square root of a negative number. If you use imaginary units, you can! OBJ: To solve quadratic equations with complex solutions & perform operations with complex numbers

2
Imaginary Unit The imaginary unit is ¡ ¡= It is used to write the square root of a negative number

3
Property of the square root of negative #s If r is a positive real number, then: Ex 1:

4
*For larger exponents, divide the exponent by 4, then use the remainder as your exponent instead. Ex 2:
