Best Answer

The square root of any positive real number (as in this case) is a real number. (Such square roots are usually irrational.)The square root of a negative real number, such as the square root of -15, is an imaginary, and therefore also a complex, number.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Is the square root of 1 an irrational number?

No. An irrational number is still a real number - it lives on the number line.The square root of -1 (known as i) is an imaginary number. It is on the imaginary axis of the complex plane.A number with components from the real axis and the imaginary axis is a complex number, and is on the complex plane.


What isn't a real number?

A complex number for example. Complex numbers involve i, the imaginary square root of -1.


The square root of a value is called an imaginary or complex number?

Not necessarily. The square root of 4 are +/- 2 which are Real numbers, NOT imaginary. Although, since the Reals are a subset of Complex numbers, the above roots would belong to the Complex numbers.


Is the square root of -100 rational?

The square root of 100 is rational since it is not repeating.


What is the square root of -34?

Square roots of negative numbers are complex, meaning that they carry a 'real' and an 'imaginary' part. Here the real part is approximately 5.8309518948453 and the imaginary part is i.


What is an unreal number?

Imaginary and complex numbers are an extension of the Real Number system. They are not called unreal. An imaginary number is a non-existent number, like the square root of a negative number. For example, the square root of -4 is 2i (i stands for imaginary). There are also complex numbers, which are defined as the sum of a real number and an imaginary number (e.g. 4 + 3i). An imaginary number does not exist, but can nevertheless be useful in certain applications. An imaginary number is any number that is the product of a real number and the square root of negative one (-1). The square root of -1 is the "unit" of the set of imaginary numbers, and is referred to as "i". As you know, negative numbers cannot have square roots, and so the square root of any negative number is "imaginary". There are also "complex numbers", which are the sum of a real number and an imaginary number. For example 3 + 2i.


What is the meaning of the term complex numbers?

Complex numbers are numbers of the a + bi where a and b are real number and i is the imaginary square root of -1.


Is the square root a real number?

The square roots of any positive real number are a positive and a negative real number. The square roots of any negative real number are a positive and a negative imaginary number. The square roots of any imaginary number or any complex number are two complex numbers.

Is the square root of 3 a real number?

Yes, the square root of 3 is a real number. (It is not imaginary. The square root of a negative number is imaginary.) The square root of 3 is not a rational number. It cannot be written as a fraction.


Is Every complex number is a pure imaginary number?

No. All Complex Numbers are of the form a + bi where a and b are Real Numbers and i is the square root of -1. So only ones where a = 0 are pure Imaginary Numbers.


Is the square root of -6 a real number?
