As a point on the positive part (right hand side) of the Real axis at $6$ units from the origin.

#### Explanation:

The Complex numbers are representable by a plane with Real numbers forming the $x$-axis and pure imaginary numbers forming the $y$-axis. The origin represents $0$.

So any Real number will be found somewhere on the $x$-axis, with positive numbers to the right and negative numbers to the left.

graph{(x-6)^2+y^2-0.01 = 0 [-7.625, 12.375, -5.08, 4.92]}

Any Complex number can be split into Real and imaginary parts. The Real part forms the $x$ coordinate and the imaginary part the $y$ coordinate.

Conversely, any point $\left(x , y\right)$ on the plane corresponds to a Complex number $x + y i$
