The commutative property is a fundamental building block of math, but it only works for addition and multiplication. This tutorial defines the commutative property and provides examples of how to use it.
The distributive property is a very deep math principle that helps make math work. It's the rule that lets you expand parentheses, and so it's really critical to understand if you want to get good at simplifying expressions. So check out the tutorial and let us know what you think!
The associative property is one of those fundamental properties of math that make math work. You probably take this property for granted because it's so ingrained, but it's important to see how the guts of math work, so check out the tutorial and make sure you're solid on your fundamentals!
You can multiply imaginary numbers like you multiply variables. Just remember that 'i' isn't a variable, it's an imaginary unit! This tutorial shows you the steps to find the product of pure imaginary numbers.
Get some practice multiplying complex numbers together using the FOIL method! This tutorial takes you through the process of multiplying two complex numbers together.
If you want to add complex numbers together, first regroup them so that like terms are next to one another. Then, add the like terms together, and you have your answer! To see an example, check out this tutorial.
When you subtract complex numbers, you first need to distribute in the minus sign into the second complex number. Then, regroup the terms so like terms are next to each other. Combine those like terms, and you have the answer! Watch this tutorial to see a great example!
To divide complex numbers, you usually need to multiply by the complex conjugate of the denominator. Follow along with this tutorial to see how to find that complex conjugate and multiply with it to perform the division!
When the imaginary number 'i' has a large exponent, it can take a while to simplify it. Luckily, this tutorial gives you a trick to quickly find a higher power of 'i'!
Simplifying the square root of a negative number is very similar to simplifying the square root of a positive number. You just need to remember 'i' in your answer! Check out this tutorial to see how to simplify the square root of a negative number.
Solving complex numbers isn't as complex as you might think. Just match up the real parts and the imaginary parts and solve! This tutorial shows you how to solve an equation involving complex numbers for specific variables.
Every tried to take the square root of a negative number? You'll need the imaginary unit 'i' to write the answer. This tutorial introduces you to this useful imaginary unit.
Imaginary numbers are used to help us work with numbers that involve taking the square root of a negative number. In this tutorial, you'll be introduced to imaginary numbers and learn that they're a type of complex number.
