the answer is (1+2i)
Not one of the answer choices
what are the answer choices
a: 5-8i b:5-2i c:-5+8i d:3i
It would help if you wrote the original problem correctly. It would also help if you showed YOUR work.
combine like terms that is all
4-2i -24i +12i^2 4 -26i -12 = -8 -26i ...?
this is addition right? or is it multiplication? oh man I agree with tkhunny.
lol at the risk of repeating myself, combine like terms \[-1+6x-4+2x\]
I think...just a suggestion that if the original poster is typing the equations or questions wrong, we shouldn't go further unless there is more information.
I fixed it.. happy now?
much better.. now do what satellite said.
This is an imaginary number...
then imagine that \(x\) is \(i\) it is the same process
isn't i^2 = -1 ?
yes, but there is no \(i^2\) in your question think you might be confusing addition and multiplication
true, but you're just adding and combining like terms for this one
a typical problem for multiplication would look like this (a+bi)(a-bi) but you don't have that
for this addition problem your final answer should look like one of these four a+bi,a-bi,ai+b,ai-b
the order doesn't matter that much
yeah i got -5 +8i , it's one of the answer choices.
