The number $4 - 3 i$ is represented by the point $\left(4 , - 3\right)$

#### Explanation:

The complex plane is simply a cartesian plane where the $x$ axis represents the real part of the number, and the $y$ axis represents the imaginary part.

So, since the real part of $4 - 3 i$ is $4$, and its imaginary part is $- 3$, the number $4 - 3 i$ is represented by the point $\left(4 , - 3\right)$ on the plane.
