    @mridrik Do you know how to find the modulus of the general form of complex numbers?

    I know like 8 % 12 = 8 and stuff like that

    OK no problem, let me give you an introduction to the modulus of complex numbers.

    Let there be Z (a complex number ) = a + ib So , we have to find the modulus of Z = |Z| = |a+ib| It is given by |Z| = \(\sqrt{x^2+y^2}\)

    oops sorry |Z| = \(\sqrt{a^2+b^2}\)

    so let us take the question itself as an example : |7-8i| = \(\sqrt{7^2+8^2}\)= \(\sqrt{49 + 64} = \sqrt{113}\)

    i plotted the point 7 - 8i on an Argand diagram, then used the Pythagorean relation to determine the distance form the origin of the point

    modulus is just the length of the vector
