What is an Imaginary Number?

1. What is an Imaginary Number?

An imaginary number is a complex number that results from the square root of a negative number. Find out where the concept of imaginary numbers came from, and learn how to solve problems involving complex numbers and imaginary numbers.

How to Add, Subtract and Multiply Complex Numbers

2. How to Add, Subtract and Multiply Complex Numbers

Complex numbers are a combination of a real number and an imaginary number that follow rules similar to those for regular numbers. Learn how to add, subtract, multiply and divide complex numbers through demonstrations of each.

How to Divide Complex Numbers

3. How to Divide Complex Numbers

Complex numbers are composed of both real and imaginary numbers and are capable of being divided using conjugates comprised of two binomials that are identical apart from the sign on the second term. Learn more about the definition of conjugates and how to divide complex numbers using complex conjugates and multiplying conjugates.

How to Graph a Complex Number on the Complex Plane

4. How to Graph a Complex Number on the Complex Plane

Complex numbers can be graphed, but use a different system to identify their coordinates that functions similarly to real number graphs. Learn how complex numbers are represented on complex axes and planes as a point on a graph.

How to Solve Quadratics with Complex Numbers as the Solution

5. How to Solve Quadratics with Complex Numbers as the Solution

Quadratics, even those with complex number solutions, can be solved using the discriminant, and square roots. Practice this with polynomials, and isolate the variables to solve the equations.
