imaginary numbersHow many pairs of integers (b,c) satisfy the equation I see you have graph paper. You must be plotting something #3 20130208 22:40:39
Re: imaginary numbersSo where are the imaginary numbers? Last edited by scientia (20130208 22:41:46) #6 20130209 01:41:23
Re: imaginary numbersHi bobbym The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #7 20130209 01:46:51
Re: imaginary numbersWhy not? What did I do wrong? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #8 20130209 01:59:00
Re: imaginary numbersThose are not imaginary numbers. They are complex!

Re: imaginary numbersHmmmm, you got me. You are correct! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: imaginary numbersYes, yes I did.

Re: imaginary numbersCompute 512i+34i. I see you have graph paper. You must be plotting something #13 20130209 14:07:39
Re: imaginary numbersa) Suppose we graph every point z in the complex plane such that z = 4. What shape results? I see you have graph paper. You must be plotting something #14 20130209 20:05:02
