 Author Comment/Response K. Cetin 06/22/00 07:37am Sorry this is so general but I really need some help with evaluating complex numbers. I am trying to do the following: I am starting with an expression of the form... [complex number (complex number - real number)]/[(complex number- real number) (complex number - real number) - complex number 1) I would like to solve this expression so that it is in a + ib format. 2) Then, I would like to convert this form into polar coordinates...r(cos[phi] + i sin[phi]) where r = Sqrt[a square + b square] and phi = arctan[b/a]. 3) Then I would like to take the real part of the expression...so it would be only r Cos[phi]. I know the command for the last step is Re[]. Does anyone know the commands for the other two steps? Thank you. URL: ,
