## Study Notes

### Real Number System

- Real numbers comprise both rational and irrational numbers.

### Rational Numbers

- Include all integers, which are natural numbers, their negatives, and zero (e.g., -3, 0, 1, 2).
- Natural numbers function as counting numbers, beginning from 1 (e.g., 1, 2, 3).

### Irrational Numbers

- Do not represent as fractions and cannot be expressed as the ratio of integers.
- Examples include the square root of 2 (√2) and π (approximately 3.1416).

### Imaginary Numbers

- Represent numbers that can be expressed using the imaginary unit (i).
- Defined as i = √-1; provides a basis for complex numbers.
- i² is calculated as (√-1)², resulting in -1.
- Higher powers of i follow this pattern:
- i³ = i² * i = -1 * i = -i
- i⁴ = i³ * i = -i * i = -i² = 1
