    Ive got , \[-5\sqrt{3} - \]

    Plot them on an argand diagram, where the Y axis is in terms of i

    I meant \[-5 \sqrt{3} -5i\] How do I plot the sqrt 3?

    so, -5(root)3 would be your x coordinate then -5i would be your y

    I guess you just have to work out roughly where -5(root)3 would be on your x axis

    it's going to be at about -8.5

    Alright, & -5i means its gonna be on the y axis right?

    Yeah, -5i is on the y axis, however, the Y acis on an argand diagram is actually in terms of i

    You can use the fact that there is a 30-60-90 triangle involved. This means you can find the point exactly. Sound a bit complicated, so I'll try to make a drawing... (just hold on a sec!)

    The circle has a radius 10.

    You can recognise it by the combination of numbers, e.g. 2+2√3 i, or 5√3-5i...

    How would I plot 2 + i ? Would it make the 2 on the y axis also?

    2 to the right, 1 up: a+bi corresponds to point (a, b)...
