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.
