Imaginary numbers

Find two imaginary numbers whose sum is a real number. How are the two imaginary numbers related?
What is its sum?

Correct result:

Sum =  0


Answer is a conjugate pair of imaginary numbers (its real parts is zero).
The two imaginary numbers that add up to a real number would be ni and -ni, because ni + (-ni) = ni - ni = 0; where 'n' is any real number, no zero. Thus, the sum of this two imaginary numbers become a real number 0.

ie...{3i;3i} Σ=3i+(3i)=0ie... \{ 3i; -3i \} \ \\ \Sigma = 3i + (-3i ) = 0
