Help with evil complex numbers!Question: #2 20060109 06:45:34
Re: Help with evil complex numbers!First, start by doing a few quick substitutions: Last edited by Ricky (20060109 06:46:50) "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20060109 07:29:54
Re: Help with evil complex numbers!thanks, i sort of understood what u did. ill be going along to my math support class to understand that fully. #4 20060109 10:14:47
