# IMAGINARY

Formulas / IMAGINARY
Calculate the imaginary coefficient of a complex number.
`=IMAGINARY(inumber)`
• inumber - required, a complex number

## Examples

• `=IMAGINARY("0-j")`

TheIMAGINARY function can also be used to return an imaginary coefficient from a complex number with a negative coefficient. This returns -1, the imaginary coefficient of the complex number 0-j.

• `=IMAGINARY(4)`

The IMAGINARY function can also accept a numerical argument, as long as it is an imaginary coefficient. For example, the abve formula returns 0, which is the imaginary coefficient of 4.

## Summary

The IMAGINARY function is a powerful tool for working with complex numbers, allowing users to quickly and accurately retrieve the imaginary coefficient of a complex number in textual format.

• The IMAGINARY function is used to return the imaginary coefficient of a complex number. It accepts a complex number as its argument.
