    Why is it coordinates? I thought it meant absolute value?

    the absolut value is the length of the vector

    So it is just Square root of 36+16?

    the length of z is Square root of 36+16 but we want the length of z-2

    i am a bit lost \(z=4-6i\) so \(z-2=2-6i\) pythagoras gives the length

    if you can remember the distance formula as the square root of the sums of the squares of the differences of the corresponding coordinates , thats great, otherwise just draw the picture
