# Complex Numbers and Quadratic Equations Assignments/DPPs

Complex Numbers and Quadratic Equations play a major role in school as well as competitive examinations like JEE, BITSAT, etc.

Complex numbers, often denoted by the symbol “z,” are mathematical entities combining real and imaginary numbers. While initially seeming abstract, they hold immense significance in various branches of mathematics, physics, and engineering. Mastering them in Class 11 lays a strong foundation for JEE and other higher-level studies.

### What are Complex Numbers?

Complex numbers are expressed in the form `z = a + bi`, where:

• a is the real part of the number.
• b is the imaginary part of the number, multiplied by the imaginary unit `i`, where `i^2 = -1`.

Think of the real number line as extending into the imaginary realm, creating a complex plane to visualize these numbers.

### Quadratic Equations: A Concise Overview with Key Formulas

Quadratic equations, a fundamental concept in algebra, are equations of the form `ax^2 + bx + c = 0`, where:

• ab, and c are real numbers (coefficients).
• a is not equal to zero (otherwise, it becomes a linear equation).
• x is the unknown variable.

These equations represent the relationship between a variable (`x`) raised to the second power (`x^2`), a linear term (`bx`), and a constant term (`c`). They are vital in various mathematical fields and real-world applications.

#### Important Formulas for Quadratic Equations:

• Standard Form: `ax^2 + bx + c = 0`
• Roots (Solutions):  x = −b ± √(b2 – 4ac) / 2a
• Discriminant: `b^2 - 4ac` (determines the nature of roots)
• Positive Discriminant: Two distinct real roots.
• Zero Discriminant: One repeated real root.
• Negative Discriminant: Two complex roots.

Understanding these formulas empowers you to solve quadratic equations and analyze their solutions based on the discriminant’s value.
