Re: Complex Numbers

Hi MathsisFun;

Good stuff. Maybe you could mention why they were invented in the first place, also an argand diagram.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Complex Numbers

Thanks guys.

It IS fascinating, and I don't think I have shown that so far sad

I intend to write more pages one day (and will include argand diagrams!) where I can hopefully show some of the neat aspects ... any suggestions?
