Complex Numbers |

A complex number is any number written in the form: a + bi Where ‘a’ and ‘b’ are real numbers, and ‘i’ is the imaginary unit. |

Complex Conjugates |

Complex Conjugates are two complex numbers written in the form: a + bi, a - bi Where ‘a’ and ‘b’ are real numbers, and ‘i’ is the imaginary unit. The product of two complex conjugates is always a real number. |

Below we're multiplying two complex conjugates. As you can see, our answer is a single real number. This will be useful information for future lectures:
