**Correct answer:**

This is essentially the following expression after translation:

Now add the real parts together for a sum of , and add the imaginary parts for a sum of .

### Example Question #3 : Basic Operations With Complex Numbers

Multiply:

Answer must be in standard form.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The first step is to distribute which gives us:

which is in standard form.

### Example Question #4 : Complex Numbers

Add:

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

When adding complex numbers, add the real parts and the imaginary parts separately to get another complex number in standard form.

Adding the real parts gives , and adding the imaginary parts gives .

### Example Question #4 : Complex Numbers

Divide:

The answer must be in standard form.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the conjugate of the denominator which is which results in

The numerator after simplification give us
