How do you plot #-2# on the complex plane and write it in polar form?
Place a point at -2 on the real axis.
Polar form: (2,
The complex plane consists of an imaginary and a real axis. As one would expect, the imaginary component of a number would be placed on the imaginary axis, and the real would be placed on the real axis.
Since the term -2 has no imaginary component, it is only present on the real axis at -2.
Polar coordinates are written in the form
To show -2 in polar coordinates,
This would be written as
