Four complex numbers π§ one, π§ two, π§ three, and π§ four are shown on the Argand diagram. Part 1) Find the image of the points π§ one, π§ two, π§ three, and π§ four under a transformation that maps π§ to ππ§. Part 2) By plotting these points on an Argand diagram, or otherwise, give a geometric interpretation of the transformation.

Weβre looking to find the transformation that maps π§ to ππ§. To do this, weβre going to first need to find the complex numbers π§ one, π§ two, π§ three, and π§ four. Remember, the horizontal axis represents the real part of a complex number. And the vertical axis represents the imaginary part. π§ one has Cartesian coordinates three, zero. So in complex number form, itβs three plus zero π, which is just three. π§ two is two plus three π. π§ three is negative two minus one π. π§ four has Cartesian coordinates zero, negative one. So as a complex number, itβs negative π.

Next, weβre going to multiply each of these numbers by π, remembering of course that π squared equals negative one. This means that ππ§ one is three π. π§ two is two π plus three π squared. And since π squared is negative one, thatβs negative three plus two π. And in the same way, ππ§ three is one minus two π. And ππ§ four is one. We now need to plot these points on the Argand diagram.

We can see that ππ§ one has Cartesian coordinates zero, three. Thatβs here. ππ§ two has Cartesian coordinates negative three, two. Thatβs here. ππ§ three is here. And ππ§ four is here. We can see that π§ one has moved a quarter of a turn here. π§ two has moved a quarter of a turn, as had π§ three and π§ four. And we can see that the transformation that maps π§ to ππ§ is a rotation about the origin in a counterclockwise direction by π by two radians.
