Exploiting the Connection to Cartesian Coordinates

For Teachers 11th - 12th Standards
Multiplication in polar form is nice and neat—that is not the case for coordinate representation. Multiplication by a complex number results in a dilation and a rotation in the plane. The formulas to show the dilation and rotation are...
