# vishal's doubt made me to write a note

$\sqrt{-1}\times\sqrt{-1}$ $case (1)=>\sqrt{-1}\times\sqrt{-1}=\sqrt{-1\times-1}=\sqrt{1}=1$ $case(2)=>\sqrt{-1}\times\sqrt{-1}=(\sqrt{-1})^2=-1$ which one is correct either first case or the second case can anyone say please calvin lin can you say it

Case 2 is correct...

Since $$\sqrt{-1} = i$$, then, the equation above is simply equal to $$i^{2} = -1$$.. :)

Case 1 is incorrect since you cannot split the square-root if both radicands are negative.
