Complex NumbersDate: 3/18/96 at 0:19:13 From: Anonymous Subject: Complex problem For an extra credit assignment I was asked to find out "why are complex numbers important"? Can you help? The books that I have looked in don't really tell you why they are important - they just say that they are. Thanks.

One place is in electronics and electricity applications - specifically, there are real and imaginary parts to voltages and current in AC circuits. -Doctor James, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
