Heron's Fomula (find the area of a triangle given 3 sides)
 √[s(sa)(sb)(sc)]
 s= 1/2(a+b+c)

What is the magnitude of a vector?
 The length of the line that is made.
 V= <4,2>= 4i + 2j

Magnitude of a vector
V= √[a^2 + b^2] < Pythagorean theorem

With imaginary numbers, the x and y axis become the _____ and ______ axis, respectively.
Imaginary and Real

When adding two vectors the result r is
the line that can be drawn between the endpoints of each vector.

Dot Product of two vectors
v • w= ac + bd

Angle between two vectors
cosθ= (u•v)÷(mag. u)(mag. v)

Unit Vector=
magnitude of 1

Formula to find unit vector
u= <vector> / mag. v

imaginary number i=
√[1]


trig form of complex number equation z=x + yi
z= r(cosθ)+r(sinθ)= r(cosθ+sinθ)

For complex numbers:
sinθ=
cosθ=
tanθ=
 y/r ; y=r(sinθ)
 x/r ; x=r(cosθ)
 y/x

How do you find r for a complex number equation?
 Magnitude of z:
 z= √[x^2 + y^2]

How is the argument (angle) measured?
ALWAYS fromt the positive xaxis.

To multiply complex number equations:
multiply the modulus (r) and add the argument (the angles on the cosine and sine in the parenthesis).

To divide complex number equations:
divide the modulus (r) and subtract the argument (the angles on the cosine and sine in the parenthesis).

Demovire's theorem (multiplying a complex number equation by itself)
z^n= r^n(cos(nθ) + i sin(nθ))
