    If someone can do this I will give you rep.

    [2-i,1+i]

    So sketch the vector.

    Just say something like "associate a plane to each point in a plane". Then just sketch 2-i in one plane, and sketch 1+i in the corresponding "2-i plane".

    Match the coordinates show above and draw the straight line.

    The plane this is drawn is called an Argand Plane.

    Matching co-ordinates that way would be wrong,

    as you would, have four dimensions I think.

    I.e. you would have i and j. Also, and the complex plane is R^2.

    So drawing a argand diagram and then drawing a straight line would be wrong, as in a sense there one coordinate is on the i bit and the other is on the j bit.

    Just say something like "associate a plane to each point in a plane". Then just sketch 2-i in one plane, and sketch 1+i in the corresponding "2-i plane".
    Hmm, what the hell? hmm, a plane to a point in a plane. Hmm, there must be a similar way to draw it. Hmm, like how you can draw a hypercube http://www4.ncsu.edu/unity/lockers/u...s/4dplots.html

    [2-i,1+i] represents two points in the complex plane.

    It asks to draw the vector so I assume it would be the vector that contains these two points?

    I am a 4th year undergraduate Maths and Economics student so I have done this stuff before, but not for about 3 years so since you've been taught it recently I would imagine you have a better idea. I merely provide a suggestion use it or ignore it at your own will.

    Good Luck.
