### Complex Numbers

Asalam O ALikum,
Straight forward --> having problems understanding following questions....

1. If X & Y are two sets & n(X) =18,n(Y)=24, n(XUY)=40   then n(X[Intersection sign]Y)=
Answer is 2 but dont know how....

2. If x^2 +y^2 = a^2 then in terms of conjgate coordinates,____
Answers is Z.Z^_ = a^2 don't know how(meaning a __ above Z)

3. IF X=[1,4] & A=[2,4] then A' =

4. IF A[1,2] & B0,2) then A(Intersection Sign)B=

5. If i^2=-1, then the value of i^-4k+3

6. if a+i3b= -1+3i^2k then real part =_________

7. if x+iy=5-6i^2k, the imaginary part(y) =________

8. The expression of 3/(under-the-root->6) - (under-the-root->-12) in the form of a+ib is_________
Answer-> 1/(under-root->6) + i/under-root-3

More question relating complex numbers would be coming soon

If anyone else has a question to ask can also post here....

### Re: Complex Numbers

n(AUB)=n(A) + n(B) - n(AandB)
40 = 18+24 - n(AB)
n(AB) = 2

### Re: Complex Numbers

i can't do it

do not know how to put it here :-(

5. i^(-4k+3) = i^-4k * i^3 = 1/i^4k * (-i) = 1/ i^2^2k * (-i) = 1/-1^2k * (-i) =
1/1^k *(-i) = 1*(-i) = -i

### Re: Complex Numbers

i mean
how IF X=[1,4] & A=[2,4] then A' =3. A` =
how IF A[1,2] & B0,2) then A(Intersection Sign)B=

Also have another question
1. If the area of a triangle is 16, formed by the points Z, Z+iZ and iZ in a complex plane then |Z|=_____

Gives 4(Under-root-->2) how?
