Find the real and imaginary parts of the complex number.
i√2
Can someone explain the steps of finding this? Thanks!
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 $\displaystyle z$?
