i need help understanding how to find complex numbers
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
A Complex Number is a combination of a Real Number and an Imaginary Number
Any normal number is a real number but Imaginary Numbers are special because:
When squared, they give a negative result.
Normally this doesn't happen, because:
 when we square a positive number we get a positive result, and
 when we square a negative number we also get a positive result (because a negative times a negative gives a positive)
ex. i=Square root of 1
So a Complex Number is a combination of a Real Number and an Imaginary Number
Well, a Complex Number is just two numbers added together (a Real and an Imaginary Number)
a Complex Number has a real part and an imaginary part.
But either part can be 0, so all Real Numbers and Imaginary Numbers are also Complex Numbers.
example 2 + 7i2 is the real part while 3i is the imaginary part.
To add two complex numbers we add each element separately:
(a+bi) + (c+di) = (a+c) + (b+d)i
Example: (3 + 2i) + (1 + 7i) = (4 + 9i)
To multiply complex numbers:
Each part of the first complex number gets multiplied by
each part of the second complex number
Just use "FOIL", which stands for "Firsts, Outers, Inners, Lasts"
Example: (3 + 2i)(1 + 7i) (3 + 2i)(1 + 7i) = 3×1 + 3×7i + 2i×1+ 2i×7i = 3 + 21i + 2i + 14i^{2} = 3 + 21i + 2i  14 (because i^{2} = 1) = 11 + 23i
