|MadSci Network: Science History|
Hi. As a senior in High School in Pre-Calc, I would like to know about Imaginary numbers, which the class is studing. It is my assumption that understanding why on earth someone would want to know about a number that is, apparently, non-existant. I also believe that if I knew who invented Imaginary numbers, I could then look up information on said individual, and perhaps understand the mystery of the "i" a name of said individual would really help! thank you.
Re: so, who invented the IMAGINARY NUMBER?
