```Complex Numbers and
Solving Equations
Honors Algebra II with Trig.
Ms. Lee
Essential Stuff
Essential Question
• How do you simplify expressions
involving complex numbers?
Essential Vocabulary
• Imaginary Number
• Complex Number
• Complex Conjugate
Imaginary Numbers
• Not all quadratic equations have
real number solutions, so to
overcome this problem,
mathematicians created an
expanded system of numbers
using the imaginary unit 𝐢
Imaginary Unit, 𝒊
𝒊=
−𝟏
𝟐
𝒊 = −𝟏
• These properties allow us
to simply the square root of
a negative number.
Complex Numbers
• A complex number is a number that
contains a real and an imaginary part.
• The standard form:
Real
𝒂 + 𝒃𝒊
Imaginary

FOIL
Replace 𝒊𝟐 with −𝟏
Combine Like Terms/Standard Form
Dividing with Complex Numbers
Divide
• Multiply the numerator and
denominator by the complex conjugate
• Complex conjugates are two complex
numbers of the form:
𝒂 + 𝒃𝒊 and 𝒂 − 𝒃𝒊
Complex Conjugates
The product of complex
conjugates will always be
a real number.
