Question 1 : Part (i)

Evaluate $(1+3i)+(5+7i)$

Add the real parts and add the imaginary parts:




Express Geometrically: When you add 2 complex numbers, you can think of vector addition.
The Answer is the diagonal of the parallelogram.

Question 1B

Evaluate the following contour integrals by parameterizing the contouring:

$\int _{c} \frac{z+2}{z}dz\; \;,$ where C is the upper half of circle of radius 2 centered at origin

$z=z0+re^{iθ}, θ->[0,pi]$
$z=2e^{it}, t->[0,pi]$
$\int_{0}^{pi} \frac{2e^{it}+2}{2e^{it}}\, 2ie^{it} dt$
$\int_{0}^{pi}\frac{2ei^{2it}=2ie^{it}}{e^{it}} dt$
$\int_{0}^{pi} 2ie^{it} + 2i dt$
$2\int_{0}^{pi} ie^{it}+2i dt$
$2[e^{it}+2it]$ from 0 to pi

++Question 1: Part (ii)
Evaluate $(1+3i)-(5+7i)$

Distribute the negative:


Add real and imaginary parts:




Express Geometrically: When you subtract 2 complex numbers, you distribute the negative then think of vector addition.

++Question 7
