to foil two parentheses box method would be great/neat |dw:1441042176623:dw|i times -i = ??

- Nnesha

when you multiply same bases you should `add` their exponents

- anonymous

okay i remember here is rule a while ago but i cant remember it that well.

- Nnesha

alright
so when we multiply same bases we should add their exponents \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n=x^{m+n}\]

- Nnesha

i is same as i to the one power
so \[\huge\rm i^1 \times i^1=??\]

- anonymous

the thing i guess that is confusing me is the fact that my problem does not contain exponents. The i thing does sort of make sense.

- Nnesha

no there is an exponent
`invisible one`

- Nnesha

i is same as i^1

- anonymous

okay

- anonymous

so my negative i should be squared then your suposed to take (-1) (-i) i^2

- anonymous

to make it with out its exponent

- Nnesha

multiply i times i which is i^2
and i^2 =what ?

- anonymous

i?

- Nnesha

\[\large\rm i=\sqrt{-1}~~~~~~~so~~i^2=?\]

- anonymous

so is it just -1? im still confused

- Nnesha

yes right i^2=-1

- Nnesha

you should remember 4 cycle of i \[\rm i=\sqrt{-1}\]\[\rm i^2=-1\] \[\rm i^3=-i\]\[\rm i^4=1\]

- anonymous

so the answer should be 63?

- Nnesha

if you know that then you can find i^999

- Nnesha

nope

- anonymous

i have no clue

- Nnesha

it's |dw:1441043195360:dw|
i times -1
forgot the negative

- Nnesha

i times -i**

- Nnesha

|dw:1441043278896:dw|
i^2=-1
now distribute -(-1) then combine them

- Nnesha

you gotta be careful about signs especially negative

- anonymous

so 64 -(-1) = 64+1 = 65

great job!

- anonymous

okay let me check it on my math lab

- anonymous

you rock!!

- Nnesha

:=) i like to work with somone who `really` wants to learn
not just waiting for the answer
so great job!

- anonymous

thank you i used to be really good at math but since ive graduated its like ive lost almost everything but your refreshing my memory! (;

- Nnesha

aww congrats!
so are u going to take calculus one right ?
good luck!

- anonymous

nope lol im not in calculus i wish i knew calculus it would give me an advantage im in a math prep for college and then im in an actual college class that will adventually teach us calculus.

- anonymous

at GGC

- Nnesha

ohh okay

- anonymous

ill be on later im gonna attempt to work on some of these by my self now the foil with the i is still a bit confusing though.

- anonymous

the prob was (2+7i)^2 and they want me to use foil i got 4+77i which is not correct

- Nnesha

(2+7i)^2 is same as (2+7i)(2+7i)
now foil!

- anonymous

okay im gonna go step by step with how i got 4+77i

- Nnesha

alright so plz show ur work :=)

- anonymous

|dw:1441044467368:dw|

- Nnesha

|dw:1441044870538:dw|

- anonymous

okay so instead it is 4+28i+49 then i would add the 4+49
= 53+28i?

- Nnesha

no it's \[\huge\rm 4+28i+49i^2=4+28i+49(-1)\] 49 is positive before u distribute by negative on

- anonymous

ah okay the signs get me again. then this should be -45+28i

- Nnesha

looks good!

- anonymous

okay one moment

- Nnesha

okay

- anonymous

your name proves you well you are definatly the human calculator (: it was correct

- Nnesha

haha thanks for the compliment lol
there are like 1000+ users who really good at math
i'm just fine :3

- anonymous

Lol well your help has worked wonders i will talk to you again later. Thank you!!

- Nnesha

okay :D

- Nnesha

& my pleasure :=)
