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

Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
