A complex number $\displaystyle z$ is defined to be

$\displaystyle z = x + iy$,

where $\displaystyle x$ and $\displaystyle y$ are real numbers, and $\displaystyle i=\sqrt{-1}$. $\displaystyle x$ is the REAL part of $\displaystyle z$ and $\displaystyle y$ is the IMAGINARY part of $\displaystyle z$.

Notice that $\displaystyle z = i\sqrt{2} = 0 + i\sqrt{2}$.

What are the real and imaginary parts of $\displaystyle z$? - Feb 28th 2009, 10:30 PMmr fantastic
