In this lesson on complex numbers, the focus is on how to divide by them. By multiplying the numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the complex number in the denominator, we can simplify and put the answer in the form a plus bi. Through several examples and a careful walkthrough, this comprehensive lesson will ensure that learners are confident in their ability to deal with algebraic type fractions involving complex numbers.
Several examples are provided, showing how to divide by complex numbers in standard form by multiplying numerator and denominator by the conjugate of the complex number in the denominator.
