by M. Bourne
We can represent complex numbers in the complex plane.
We use the horizontal axis for the real part and the vertical axis for the imaginary part.
The number `3 + 2j` is represented by:
A is the representation of the complex number `3 + 2j.`
Adding Complex Numbers Graphically
Need Graph Paper?

Add `1 + 2j` and `3 - j` graphically.
Perform graphically: `(3 - 2j) + (-1 - j)`
