Yes it is. All pure imaginary numbers (such as 5i) as well as all real numbers and any combination of real & imaginary (by adding, subtractin, multiplying, dividing) makes a complex number.

What is the usefulness of the conjugate and its effect on other complex numbers?

The conjugate of a complex number is the same number (but the imaginary part has opposite sign). e.g.: A=[5i - 2] --> A*=[-5i - 2] Graphically, as you change the sign, you also change the direction of that vector. The conjugate it's used to solve operations with complex numbers. When a complex number is multiplied by its conjugate, the product is a real number. e.g.: 5/(2-i) --> then you multiply and divide by the complex conjugate (2+i) and get the following: 5(2+i)/(2-i)(2+i)=(10+5i)/5=2+i

What is 5i?

Welcome to the world of imaginary and complex numbers. i is defined to be a number such that i2 = -1. i is imaginary ( that is not real) 5i is i+i+i+i+i . There is no simpler form than 5i . Please see the attached link for more about imaginary numbers.

What is an unreal in math?

The only thing I can think of that you might mean is an imaginary or complex number. Since there is no solution to √(-1) mathematicians labeled it as i which is the imaginary number, and any number that includes purely i is also imaginary. Complex numbers are a mix of both real and imaginary numbers. for example 3 is real, 5i is imaginary and 3+5i is complex. Hopefully this answers what you meant.
