Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5we might write i as cos 3pi/2 + i sin 3pi/2 = e^(i 3pi/2) so i^i = [e^(i 3pi/2)]^i = e^ 3pi/2 = approx 0.00898

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok, i thought it was just an imaginary number to the power of i is,,that will be equal to 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I should have said 0.00898 is a real number  it might not be rational.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5there are some remarkable results sometimes when you play with complex numbers. the Euler equation is derived from comples numbers also e^i pi = cos pi + i sin pi = 1 + 0i = 1 so e ^ i pi + 1 = 0 This equation unites the 5 most important numbers in mathematics: 0 , 1, pi, e, and i.
