The programming language Python has a built-in type for complex numbers. A separate algorithm implementing all common arithmetical operations is not needed. In Python, the imaginary unit \(i\) is denoted with the letter \(j\).

Algorithm: Complex Numbers


z1 = complex(3, 4) z2 = complex(-2, 5)

print(z1) print(z2) print(z2.conjugate()) print(z2.real) print(z2.imag) print("-----------")

print(z1 + z2) print(z1 - z2) print(z1 * z2) print(z1 / z2) print(abs(z2))

''' will output (3+4j) (-2+5j) (-2-5j) -2.0 5.0

(1+9j) (5-1j) (-26+7j) (0.48275862068965514-0.793103448275862j) 5.385164807134504 '''
