If i is raised to an odd power, then it cannot simplify to be?
a) -1 b) -i c) i
In complex number 'i' is referred to as √-1. It is considered to be an imaginary number.
Answer: If i is raised to an odd power, then it can not simplify to be -1.
Let us proceed step by step
As we know that, the value of i is √-1.
Let us square on both sides, we get
i2 = √-1 × √-1 = -1
i3 = i × i × i = -1 × i = -i
Hence we observe that we get -1 for even power which clearly shows that we cannot get the same value for odd power.
