Because a complex number can be expressed as an ordered pair, we can plot the number $x + i y$ on the real number plane $\R^2$:

This representation is known as the **complex plane**.

### Real Axis

Complex numbers of the form $\tuple {x, 0}$, being wholly real, appear as points on the $x$-axis.

### Imaginary Axis

Complex numbers of the form $\tuple {0, y}$, being wholly imaginary, appear as points on the points on the $y$-axis.

This line is known as the **imaginary axis**.
