which is the proper way to type my answer using parentheses? I have to type my answers as (abi)/c or (a+bi)/c. Thanks.
the answer is
4i1
 
2
(with the minus sign before the fraction)
would I type (1+4i)/2 or (1+4i)/2 or something totally different?
Thanks!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, but moving it to abi form... I lost points on my previous answers with format, so I want to make sure I get the format and the signs correct this time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does the ( ) stay outside the () and it becomes (1+4i) or does it distribute and become (14i) ? Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do you want to know how to put the parenthesis and this is better, or should I post it in latex or draw it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not really. I solved (3+5i)/(2+2i), got (4i1)/2 answer, but lost points on format. Is there a "more correct" way to format the answer? Personally, I think either would be good, but my teacher seems to disagree. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are entering the answer just using what your keyboard has to offer without attachments, pictures and such. This is why you have a problem, because you sometimes fail to correctly put the answer that you actually had in mind. Is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have no way to attach it written for this problem, with my work. It's just the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2In my college email I use latex pictures if I want to communicate with my professor. (Any latex converter suffices. Then convert it to an image...) but I guess we would HAVE TO comprehend the parenthesis spaces and everything

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is an online HS course :) I prefer the assignments I can use Word equations or take a photo of my work for. I'm betting it doesn't really matter the format :) Thanks! I'll give it a try.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For example: when I enter (d/2)  (c/2)i I will use wolfram to see what it would show. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%28d%2F2%29++%28c%2F2%29i it just interpreted my input (under "Input")

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it gave me 1/2 2i ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and the way to check this, if it is same or not, is as follows: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=+%283%2B5i%29%2F%282%2B2i%29%3D%284i1%29%2F2%3D%281%2F2%292i look at what I entered and the interpretation it gave.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK. I get that! I'm thinking since my teacher requires abi format, I should write it as 1/22i instead of (4i1)/2 ... ? I understand it all, I just hate losing points due to a ; when all the answers are essentially the same :) !!! I lost points with the 4i being written first on previous problems.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you are missing the minus your result is the exact opposite. Although it is "exact" opposite (like everything besides ) it is still the exact "opposite" (the answer is wrong).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I meant whether it was (4i1) or (1+4i) not that the negative sign wasn't there. :)
