Find the real part of the complex number:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex](1-12i)e^{-2+4i}[/tex]

I know that z = a + ib can be rewritten as

[tex]z = |z|e^{i\theta}[/tex]

but that doesn't help because the coefficient of the e is not a scalar value, rather a complex number.

Thanks

Tom
