    Hello,

    I'm practising some further maths questions and I've got stuck on the last few that involve loci with complex numbers. Please could someone explain how to approach these as I'm a bit confused.

    Thanks

    Have you covered loci yet? These are quite standard.

     |z - \alpha| = r represents a circle radius r centre  \alpha

     arg (z - \alpha) = \theta represents a half-line of points starting at  \alpha which make an angle of  \theta to a line parallel to the real axis.
