Graphing Complex Numbers
Lesson 1
Problem:   Represent the complex number graphically: 3 - 8i
a44
Step 1:  In a complex number a + bi is the point (a, b),  
Step 2: Where the x-axis (real axis) with real numbers and the y-axis (imaginary axis) with imaginary numbers.
Step 3: 2+4i = (2,4), its now easy to plot the graph of (2,4).  X-axis = 2;Y-axis = 4
Try two practice problems: Represent the following complex number graphically.
A. -6 - 5i
B. -7 + 4i
