# What is the conjugate of the complex number 3+2i?

Dec 9, 2015

The complex conjugate is $3 - 2 i$.

#### Explanation:

The complex conjugate of $z = a + b i$ is a complex number whose imaginary part is an opposite number to the imaginary part of $z$, so if $z = a + b i$ then the conjugate is:

$\overline{z} = a - b i$
