5.7 Complex Numbers Objectives: • Identify, operate with, and graph complex numbers. • Find the complex roots of quadratic equations that model real-world situations. Complex Numbers • A complex number has a real part & an imaginary part. • Standard form is: a bi Real part Example: 5+4i Imaginary part Example 1: Name the real part and the imaginary part of each complex number. a) 2 + 4i Real: 2 Imaginary: 4i b) 0 – 3i Real: 0 Imaginary: -3i c) 0 + 6i Real: 0 Imaginary: 6i d) 7 + 0i Real: 7 Imaginary: 0i e) -1 – 0i Real: -1 Imaginary: 0i Definition of Equal Complex Numbers Two complex numbers are equal if their real parts are equal and their imaginary parts are equal. If a + bi = c + di, then a = c and b = d Example 2: Find the values for x and y such that 2x + 16i = 6 + 4yi 2x = 6 x=3 16i = 4yi y=4 Operations of Complex Numbers • Operating with complex numbers is very similar to operating with binomials. • Treat i like a variable. When adding or subtracting complex numbers, combine like terms.

Example 4: a) Simplify − + = − − ² = − b) Simplify 8 5i2 3i F O I L 16 24i 10i 15i 16 14i 15 31 14i 2 c) Simplify 6 2i 5 3i F O I L 3018i 10i 6i 30 28i 6 24 28i 2 How do we handle quadratic equations with complex roots? Example 5: Do Now: Solve the following quadratic: x2 – 8x + 17 = 0 Example 5: Complex Roots x2 – 8x + 17 = 0 standard form y = ax2 + bx + c Quadratic Formula x determine a, b, and c substitute into quadratic formula evaluate and simplify b b2 4 ac 2a a = 1, b = -8, c = 17 x (8) (8) 2 4(1)(17) 2(1) 64 68 8 4 x 2 2 8 2 x i 4 i 2 2 8 Example 6: Solve the equation and express its roots in the form a + bi. x x2 x5 2 b b2 4 ac 2a put in standard form x2 – 2x + 10 = 0 determine a, b, and c substitute into quadratic formula evaluate and simplify a = 1, b = -2, c = 10 x x (2) 2 (2) 2 4(1)(10) 2(1) 4 40 2 36 2 2 x 1 3i Classwork: Operations with Complex Numbers Worksheet Homework Pg 299-300 Exercises: 1-4, 7-15, 18-21 Example 7: A manufacturing company is selling a new product and they want to know if it would be profitable to do so. The variable x represents the number (in hundreds) of items manufactured and sold. The cost is C(x) = 3x + 40 The revenue is R(x) = -x² + 15x a) Find the break even points, where the cost equals the revenue. Use your graphing calculator to check your answer. b) Should the company launch their new product? Explain. C(x) = 3x + 40 R(x) = -x² + 15x a) Find the break even points, where the cost equals the revenue. Use your graphing calculator to check your answer. Solution: 3x + 40 = -x² + 15x x² - 12x + 40 = 0 Example 7: = 12± 12²−4(1)(40) 2(1) = 12± 144−160 2 = = 12± −16 2 12±4 2 = 6 + 2 6 − 2 The solutions are not real, so there are no break even points. On the graph, they do NOT intersect. Example 7: b) Should the company launch their new product? Explain. The cost function is always above the revenue function. Therefore, cost always exceeds revenue. They should NOT launch their new product. Conjugates In order to simplify a fractional complex number, use a conjugate. What is a conjugate? a + bi and a – bi are conjugates of each other. The complex conjugate of a + bi is denoted + Example 8: Simplify a) 8i Ex: 1 3i 8i 1 3i 1 3i 1 3i Use the conjugate 8i 24i 8i 24 19 10 2 4i 12 5 = + Example 8 (Continued) You try these! 3 b) 1. 2 5i 3-i c) 2. 2-i + + The Complex plane Real Axis Imaginary Axis The Complex plane To graph a + bi on the complex plane, plot the point (a, b).
