**real valued fft**

I have one query about DFT.

In DFT, when input is real, we get even symmetry magnitude spectrum.

It means that if we perform N-point DFT on a real input sequence, we'll get N separate complex DFT output terms but first (N/2 + 1) terms are independent.

Why one term is more instead of N/2 terms?

Please clarify my confusion.

Thanks and regards,

Naresh
