## Operations in the Complex Plane

1.
Graph $(1-3i) - (4+5i)$ on the complex plane. 2.
Add $z_1 = -2+5i$ and $z_2= 3+i$ graphically. 3.
Find the value of $(9-3i) - (4 - 5i)$ graphically. 4.
Find the value of $(-3+i) + (7-3i)$ graphically. 5.
One method for adding or subtracting complex numbers in the complex plane is to look at the numbers as vectors, and then add or subtract these vectors as is done with vectors in the real plane. A vector is defined as something having both a direction and a magnitude. Why can complex numbers in the complex plane be represented as vectors? Choose all correct answers.
1. They can't really, but it's a useful tool to use when adding or subtracting.
2. Because, as seen in polar form, they have a magnitude, $r$, and direction, $theta$.
3. Because they are represented by two "coordinates", a real and imaginary value, which is similar to the component form of a vector.
4. Because complex numbers and vectors are identical.

André is working on a math problem where he has to subtract two complex numbers graphically. They are $z_1 = 3-8i$ and $z_2 = -5+i$. If he is using the translation method, and is subtracting $z_1$ from $z_2$, which complex number is considered the starting point, and then how is it translated?
1. $z_1$ is the starting point, and is translated 5 units left and 1 unit up.
2. $z_1$ is the starting point, and is translated 5 units right and 1 unit down.
3. $z_2$ is the starting point, and is translated 3 units right and 8 units down.
4. $z_2$ is the starting point, and is translated 3 units left and 8 units up.
