A-level Mathematics/MEI/FP1/Complex Numbers/basic operations solutions

1.

 5j + 3j = (5+3)j = 8(j)= 8j

2.

 7(3j) = (7)(3)(j) = 21(j) = 21j

3.

(9 + 2j)(1-j) + 3 - 2j = 9 -2j^2 -2j -9j + 3 -2j= 9 - 11j -(2)(-1) +3 -2j = 9 + 2 + 3 -11j - 2j = 14 -13j

4.

 (21 + 7j) \div 7 = 21 \div 7 + 7j \div 7 = 3 + j

Any questions?, FAQs will be posted here.
