Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

### Algebraic Identities for Complex numbers

The algebraic identities of complex number is same as that for real numbers.

Which of the following are examples of algebraic identities?

• (a+b)^2 = a^2+2ab+b^2
• (a-b)^2 = a^2-2ab+b^2
• a^2-b^2 = (a+b)(a-b)
• all the above
• all the above

The answer is 'all the above'

If an algebraic identity is true for real numbers, will that be true for complex numbers?

• No, it will not be true at all
• Yes, for all identities with four fundamental operations
• Yes, for all identities with four fundamental operations

The answer is 'Yes, for all identities with four fundamental operations'.

The four fundamental operations like
•  addition,
•  subtraction,
•  multiplication, and
•  division define the properties
•  associative,
•  commutative
•  distributive.

The algebraic identities employ the properties of the operations given above. Between real numbers and complex numbers the properties are same. So the algebraic identities will hold true.

•  Algebraic identities are same as that of real numbers.

Algebraic Identities: (z_1+z_2)^2 = z_1^2+ 2z_1z_2+z_2^2
(z_1-z_2)^2 = z_1^2 - 2z_1z_2+z_2^2
(z_1+z_2)(z_1-z_2) = z_1^2 - z_2^2
(z_1+z_2)^3 = z_1^3+z_2^3+ 3z_1^2z_2+ 3z_1z_2^2
and so on.
