I've never properly studied complex numbers but I will soon (in September). Basically:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

We get taught from a young age that:

the real root of f(x)=x²-4 is where the graph of y=f(x) cuts the x axis

But is there a graphical representation of a complex root?

What's so special about the value x= +/- 2i if g(x)=x²+4 ? Is there a 3D graphical representation of this root?

Thanks in advance.
