Step 1
To find the absolute value of the given complex numbers.
a. Given complex number is z=3+4i
Absolute value of a complex number is the distance of complex number from origin.
It is given by \(\displaystyle{\left|{\left|{z}\right|}\right|}\)
Absolute value of the given complex number will be:
\(\displaystyle{\left|{{z}}\right|}=\sqrt{{{\left({3}\right)}^{{2}}+{\left({4}\right)}^{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{25}}}\)
=5
Step 2
b. Given complex number is z=−1−2i
Absolute value of given complex number will be:
\(\displaystyle{\left|{{z}}\right|}=\sqrt{{{\left(-{1}\right)}^{{2}}+{\left(-{2}\right)}^{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{5}}}\)
Hence, absolute value is \(\displaystyle\sqrt{{{5}}}\).
