Abstract

This paper is discussing how and where imaginary numbers came to be and how their extension to our classic number line helped mathematics to grow even faster. We talk about the beginning of imaginary numbers and the set of rules that come with them. We show how an error that occurred in an equation started the discovery of these. These numbers also help us achieve a better perspective towards the parabolas we see every day. At the end, you can see how these new numbers found the perfect place on the number line and fit in well with different categories we all know.
