Are Imaginary Numbers Fairy Tales?

My name is C. Church and I am attending the College of the Delta where
I regularly sit in a math class.
It seems that when I start to get the hang of things in Algebra class,
the topic takes a turn for the more complex and more confusing.
Speaking of imaginary numbers, "i" isn't that confusing I have to
admit, but "e" is. Can any one explain to me the idea of "e."?
Hopefully this request makes sense.
