Re: Complex Numbers - Pre University level I

1.
real part is 4
complex part is -i√3.
2.
the conjugate is
1/2+1/2*i
4.
5+5i   3+4i
------*------
3-4i    3+4i
= 15+20i+15i+20i^2
--------
25
= 15-20+20i+15i
-------
25
= -5+35i
------
25
= -1   7
---+---*i
5    5

Thats all I can do with my complex knowledge:)

glenn101,
the only trivial mistake I noticed is in answer to 1, where when the real and imaginary parts are said, the imaginary part shouldn't include 'i'.
Well done!!!

Re: Complex Numbers - Pre University level I

4. (-5 + 35i)/ 25

-0.2 + 1.4i
