    \[\frac{ 12+9i }{ 3-4i }\times \frac{ 3+4i }{ 3+4i }=\frac{ (12+9i)(3+4i) }{ 9+16 }\]

    Mate. If you need the answer to refer to when you do it. Here's what you want to get as your answer. 3i is the answer.

    absolute value of a complex number means the distance of the curve of the complex number. To find the distance of complex number curve, you just use pythagoras... \[\left| a+ib \right|=\sqrt{a^2+b^2}\]

    Dude haven;t you learnt about absolute values? The absolute value of something is the distance from the origin.

    You're finding the distance from the origin to to the point (a, b)
