COMPLEX: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use COMPLEX in Google Sheets?

Complex numbers are numbers that can be expressed in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers and i is the imaginary unit. Complex numbers have many applications in mathematics and physics. In Google Sheets, you can use the COMPLEX function to calculate the complex conjugate of a number. The complex conjugate of a number is the number with the imaginary part negated. For example, the complex conjugate of 3 + 4i is 3 - 4i.

What is the syntax of COMPLEX in Google Sheets?

COMPLEX is a function in Google Sheets that allows you to calculate the complex number corresponding to the given real and imaginary parts. The syntax for using the COMPLEX function is: =COMPLEX(real, imaginary)

What is an example of how to use COMPLEX in Google Sheets?

One example of how to use COMPLEX in Google Sheets is to create a formula that calculates the complex number z = a + bi. In Google Sheets, you can create this formula by typing "=COMPLEX(a,b)" into a cell. The "a" argument is the real part of z, and the "b" argument is the imaginary part of z.

When should you not use COMPLEX in Google Sheets?

There are a few occasions when you should not use COMPLEX in Google Sheets. One is when you are trying to enter text into a cell that already has a complex number format. In this case, you will need to remove the complex number formatting from the cell before you can enter text into it. Another time you should not use COMPLEX is when you are trying to calculate the square root of a negative number. In this case, Google Sheets will return an error.

What are some similar formulae to COMPLEX in Google Sheets?

COMPLEX is a formula used in Google Sheets to calculate complex numbers. It takes two arguments, the real part and the imaginary part. Other formulae that can be used to calculate complex numbers are CONJUGATE and IMAGINARY. CONJUGATE is used to take the complex conjugate of a number, and IMAGINARY is used to calculate the imaginary part of a complex number.
