```Jiriki,
Mathematica uses complex numbers by default:

(2 + 3I ) + (3 + 4I)

5 + 7*I

(2 + 3I )* (3 + 4I)

-6 + 17*I

(2 + 3I )/ (3 + 4I)

18/25 + I/25

Conjugate[2 + 3I]

2 - 3*I

Maybe this sort of thing is the problem

Sin[3 + 4I]

Sin[3 + 4*I]

Using inexact numbers changes this

Sin[3.0 + 4.0I]

3.8537380379193773 - 27.016813258003932*I

or

N[Sin[3 + 4I]]

3.8537380379193773 - 27.016813258003932*I

Integrate[(2 + 3I) Sin[x], {x, 1 + 2I, 3 + 4I}]

(2 + 3*I)*(Cos[1 + 2*I] - Cos[3 + 4*I])
