# Ti-83+ Imaginary Numbers

## Recommended Posts

well.. i am squaring an imaginary numer.. now "i" stans for the imaginary part.. as you all know.. the ti83+ does the " i " part.. and the squaring part.. you can get an answer by typing this in.. i^6 .. that would qual -1 .. but after the squar of 7 you get this wierd scientific notation .. now that is not right.. i konw all of them do that.. but is there any program for the ti83+ that will let me do these past 7?? like i^99 ?? thanks

I dont know of a proggy but I do know of a site to check

ticalc.org <- Best authority besides TI itself on the TI calcuators

There is no need to go beyond i^4, because it's just a sequence. i^5 is just the same thing as i^1, i^6 is the same as i^2, and so on. So if you have i^99, it would be the same as i^3, since 99/4 = 24.75, and the .75 is 3/4, so it's the 3rd member of the series.

Exactly what I was thinking! I'm in Pre-Calc right now, darn math teacher won't let us use graphing calculators on tests because "they're too powerful".

an even power to the i is gonna be positive whole, an odd power to the i is imaginary. doh, what eva said

what i said before has been edited out so as not to confuse ya'll

LOL, one remark about imaginary numbers and he's already assumed to be extremely intelligent? No offense Eva, as I'm sure you are intelligent. Guess I shouln't be too confident, since I'm in Calc 3 and in college. I remember way back in time when I did stuff like that.
