In Section 1.3 we saw that a complex number z = x+i*y could be viewed as a vector in the xy-plane whose tail is at the origin and whose head is at the point (x,y). A vector can be uniquely specified by giving its magnitude (i.e., its length) and direction (i.e., the angle it makes with the positive x-axis). In this section, we focus on these two geometric aspects of complex numbers.
