What say would (2 + 3i) * (2 + 3i) be? i is the square root of -1 of course. Thanks!!! return Neff; //God bless gamedev!

(2 + 3i) * (2 + 3i)
(2 + 3i)^2
4+9i^2+12i
4-9+12i

-> 12i-5

It should be that I think... (i*i = -1)

Not to be overly picky, but that should be written: -5+12i (Looks correct to me)



Ok... :-)
