If ๐‘ง is equal to negative four minus six ๐‘–, what is the imaginary part of ๐‘ง?

Any complex number can be expressed in the form ๐‘Ž plus ๐‘๐‘–. ๐‘Ž is the real part of the complex number, and ๐‘ is the imaginary part. We have been asked to consider the complex number negative four minus six ๐‘–. The real part of this complex number ๐‘ง is negative four and the imaginary part of the complex number ๐‘ง is negative six. We can, therefore, conclude that in the complex number ๐‘ง is equal to negative four minus six ๐‘–. The imaginary part of ๐‘ง is negative six.
