## Subtraction of Two Complex Numbers

If we have two complex numbers and then we can subtract one complex number from another complex number. and then we can subtract one complex number from another complex number. then we can subtract one complex number from another complex number.

Graphically complex subtraction is the same as vector subtraction. We reverse the direction of B and then draw a vector parallel to and , and then connect the origin to the new point. Diagram below illustrates complex subtraction. Geometrically subtracting a complex number with a complex number will translate to the left with amount of and shifted downward with amount of . and , and then connect the origin to the new point.

### Properties of Complex Subtraction

• Zero complex number is the identity element of complex subtraction because is the identity element of complex subtraction because
• If is a complex number then the negative complex number is a complex number then the negative complex number
• Commutative
• Associative
