Knowing the argument and the modulus of a complex number allows us to convert a complex number from its rectangular form, which is what we have been using thus far, to its other basic form – polar form. We will see that while a complex number in rectangular form is denoted by its horizontal and vertical components, a complex number in polar form is denoted by its magnitude and argument.

Basic Concepts: Distance formula: $d = \sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}$, Use tangent ratio to calculate angles and sides (Tan = $\frac{o}{a}$ ), Solving expressions using 45-45-90 special right triangles , Solving expressions using 30-60-90 special right triangles

Related Concepts: Imaginary zeros of polynomials, Magnitude of a vector, Direction angle of a vector

- 1.Convert the following complex numbers from rectangular form to polar forma)$z=2i-3$b)$w=-5-3i$c)$z=4-i$
- 2.Convert the following complex numbers from polar form to rectangular forma)$z=4(\cos(\frac{\pi}{4})+i\sin(\frac{\pi}{4}))$b)$w=13(\cos(180^{\circ})+i\sin(180^{\circ}))$c)$z=4(\cos(\frac{5\pi}{3})+i\sin(\frac{5\pi}{3}))$
- 3.Given that $z=4-3i$, and $w=2-i$, find $z+w$ and express it in polar form
