Imaginary Number[edit]

Imaginary Number is defined as

j = \sqrt{-1}

Mathematic Operations[edit]

Addition[edit]

j + 0 = j
j + j = 2j
j + (-j) = 0

Subtraction[edit]

j - 0 = j
j - j = 0
j - (-j) = 2j

Multiplication[edit]

j x 0 = 0
j x j = j2
j x (-j) = -j2

Division[edit]

j / 0 = 00
j / j = 1
j x (-j) = -1
