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 x-y 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.
