Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know that the answer is 1 + x^2, but I keep on thinking that it is 1x^2 because i^2 = 1.. Can someone please explain this to me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh wait i got it, never mind, thank you. i is just there to denote that it is imaginary, so the magnitude still turns out to be sqrt(a^2+b^2) by the pythagorean theorem
