  1. Let p = 2 + 5i and q = 3 − 4i.
    Calculate the following values and simplify to a + bi form. Homework Help ✎

    1. p + q

    2. pq

    3. pq

Substitute the known values into the equation for p and q.

(2 + 5i) + (3 − 4i)

Combine like terms.

(2 + 3) + (5i − 4i)

Simplify.

5 + i

Is this in a + bi form? How can you tell?

Use the same method as part (a).

−0.56 + 0.92i

Use a generic rectangle to multiply the binomials.

26 + 27i
