Consistency of Arithmetic Operations on Complex Numbers in Both Rectangular and Polar (Exponential) Forms Consider two complex numbers, N 1 and N 2 , written in both rectangular and polar (exponential) forms: N 1 = a + j b = a 2 + b 2 e j ! 1 where 1 = tan –1 ( b / a ) cos 1 ( ) = a a 2 + b 2 sin 1 ( ) = b a 2 + b 2 N 2 = c + j d = c 2 + d 2 e j 2 where 2 = tan –1 ( d / c ) cos 2 ( ) = c c 2 + d 2 sin 2 ( ) = d c 2 + d 2 a Real Imag b N 1 a 2 + b 2 1 c Real Imag d N 2 c 2 + d 2 2 (0, 0) (0, 0)

The rectangular and polar (exponential) forms of complex numbers shown above are consistent with the Euler relation: Ae j ! = A cos + jA sin A. The rectangular and polar forms of complex numbers yield identical results when added or subtracted. Rectangular form : N 1 ± N 2 = ( a + j b ) ± ( c + j d ) = ( a ± c ) + j ( b ± d ) Polar (exponential) form : N 1 ± N 2 = a 2 + b 2 e j 1
