The solution of a quadratic equation can be obtained by the formula.

Example

i) If

This is straight forward enough.

ii) If

In fact cannot be represented by an ordinary number.

Similarly,

Then from the equation that we have been solving it gives that

Note that

The power of reduces to one of

It can be deduced that

Numbers of the form ,where a and b are real numbers are called complex numbers.

Note that cannot be combined any further

In such expression

A is called the real part of a complex number

B is called imaginary part of a complex number (NOT )

Complex number = (real part) + (imaginary part)

Any pair of complex numbers of the form has a product which is real.

i.e.

Such complex numbers are said to be conjugate

Each is a conjugate of the other.

Hence

i.e.

.if then the conjugate is

A division will be done by multiplying numerator and denominator the conjugate of the denominator.

Example

For division, the numerator and denominator both will be multiplied by the conjugate of the denominator.

i.e.

**NOTE:** – The complex number is zero if and only if the real term and the imaginary term are each zero.

– The real term is given first even when is negative

i.e.

Suppose

Thus two complex numbers are equal if and only if the real terms and the imaginary terms are separately equal.
