For this problem i am given two complex numbers [tex]Z_1 , Z_2[/tex] and then a third which is the sum of the first two complex numbers [tex] Z_3 [/tex]. I am then asked to find the geometric interpetation of these numbers in [tex] \mathbb{R}^2 [/tex]. I am fine when graphing them in the complex plane but unsure of what they look like in [tex] \mathbb{R}^2 [/tex]. Do I just take the real part and graph a point in the [tex] \mathbb{R}^2 [/tex]? If so how do I determine which axis it would be on? Do you think this might be a typo?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
