identify the graph of 4+2i
if someone could explain to me how you decide which way to go on the graph as far as imaginary and real axis

I can't think of any way to explain it here that won't have been presented in your class materials, with pictures even.
Think of 4+2i as the point (4,2) in the xy plane. Plot it. Done.
The complex number a+bi is plotted just exactly like the point (a,b).
If that's too difficult, man, you have a lot of catching up to do.

I meant youd go up 4 and over 2 looking at graph would be on right side. Was just making sure I was doing it right.

im not sure if you go up 4 and over 2 or up 2 and over 4, this is where i get confused
