Studying geometry in complex number – I

Complex number is worth its name, complex.

While complex number itself gives hard time to students, its use in geometry adds further difficulty. How do you represent geometric shapes in complex number? What is the meaning of the equations when represented in terms of complex numbers?

While this is a difficult topic, little bit if care and observations can go a long way in making this topic simpler for students. Let’s look at some of the typical examples and how to interpret them.

For JEE (Main and Advanced), you need to know these basic application of complex numbers in geometry and how to apply them in solving questions.

You really don’t need to solve Loney’c coordinate geometry using complex numbers. Loney’s coordinate geometry can be solved using the coordinate geometry concepts which are far easier than complex number.

More on this in my next post.
