• Irrational numbers are numerical expressions, eg: `2+root(5)(3)`

» Complex numbers are numerical expressions too.

• Irrational numbers do not have a standard form. They are expressed as numerical expressions, with some having many terms. eg: `2+ root(2)(2)-3xx root(3)(5)`

» Similar to irrational numbers, the direct extension is to express complex numbers as numerical expressions. eg: `x^3=1` has `3` solutions, `(root(3)(1))_(1st)`, `(root(3)(1))_(2nd)`, `(root(3)(1))_(3rd)`

» But, Any complex number is given in a standard form `a+ib`, because of Euler Formula `re^(i theta)``= r(cos theta + i sin theta)`

Direction - Unique Feature of Vectors

Welcome to *the only place where the essence of vector arithmetics is explained*.

Vectors are quantities with spatial-direction specified.

If two vectors interact, then usually, one vector is split into two components

• component along the direction of the other vector

• component perpendicular to the direction of the other vector.

In vector arithmetics these two components behave differently.

• Vector addition: the component along the direction adds in magnitude.

• Vector dot-product: the component along the direction takes part in the product and the component in perpendicular is lost.
