Step 1
We have to find absolute value of complex number:
z=5+12i
We know that if we have complex number z=x+iy then its absolute value will be,
\(\displaystyle{\left|{{z}}\right|}=\sqrt{{{x}^{{2}}+{y}^{{2}}}}\)
Comparing the complex number z=5+12i with z=x+iy, we get
x=5
y=12
Where,
x is real part of complex number
and y is the imaginary part of the complex number.
Step 2
Applying above formula for the given complex number,
\(\displaystyle{\left|{{z}}\right|}=\sqrt{{{x}^{{2}}+{y}^{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{5}^{{2}}+{12}^{{2}}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{25}+{144}}}\)
\(\displaystyle=\sqrt{{{169}}}\)
=13
Hence, absolute value of complex number is 13.
