Basically to graph a complex number you use the numerical coefficients as coordenates on the complex plane.

Remember to use the horizontal axis to plot the REAL part and the vertical one to plot the coeficient of the immaginary part (the number with

So, for a general complex number,

In your case, where the number is given as:

Now you can try by yourself by inventing complex numbers and plotting them in various quadrants on the complex plane.
