# Haskell Program to convert a number into a complex number

This tutorial will help us in converting a number into a complex number. In Haskell, the Data.Complex library provides a Complex type to represent complex numbers. The :+ operator is used to construct a complex number from its real and imaginary parts.

## Method 1: Using convertToComplex Function

In this approach, the convertToComplex function takes a real number as input and returns a complex number with the real component equal to the sum of the input and the predefinedReal value and the imaginary component equal to the predefinedImaginary value. The main function gets a real number and then uses convertToComplex to convert it to a complex number, which is then printed to the screen.

### Algorithm

**Step 1**− ‘Data.Complex’ module is imported.**Step 2**− Predefined real and imaginary values are defined.**Step 3**− convertToComplex() function is defined using predefined real and imaginary values, as (predefinedReal + real) :+ predefinedImaginary**Step 4**− Program execution will be started from main function. The main() function has whole control of the program.**Step 5**− A variable named, “real” is being initialized. It will have the real number value that is to be converted into a complex number.**Step 6**− convertToComplex() function is being called and real value will be passed as parameter to it.**Step 7**− Final resultant converted complex number value is displayed.

### Example

In the following example, we are going to learn how to use convertToComplex function to convert a number into complex number

import Data.Complex predefinedReal :: Double predefinedReal = 2.0 predefinedImaginary :: Double predefinedImaginary = 3.0 convertToComplex :: Double -> Complex Double convertToComplex real = (predefinedReal + real) :+ predefinedImaginary main :: IO () main = do let real = 4.0 let complex = convertToComplex real putStrLn $ "Complex number: " ++ show complex

### Output

Complex number: 6.0 :+ 3.0

## Method 2: Using mkPolar Function

This approach uses the mkPolar function from Data.Complex to create a complex number from its magnitude and angle, and then adding the real value to the complex number. The main function gets a real number and then uses convertToComplex to convert it to a complex number, which is then printed to the screen.

### Algorithm

**Step 1**− ‘Data.Complex’ module is imported.**Step 2**− convertToComplex() function is defined as, mkPolar (sqrt (real^2 + imaginary^2)) (atan2 imaginary real)**Step 3**− Program execution will be started from main function. The main() function has whole control of the program.**Step 4**− A variable named, “real” is being initialized. It will have the real number value that is to be converted into a complex number. And a variable named, “imaginary” is being initialized, that will contain the imaginary value.**Step 5**− convertToComplex() function is being called and real & imaginary values will be passed as parameter to it.**Step 6**− Final resultant converted complex number value is displayed.

### Example

In the following example, we are going to learn how to use mkPolar function to convert a number into complex number

import Data.Complex convertToComplex :: Double -> Double -> Complex Double convertToComplex real imaginary = mkPolar (sqrt (real^2 + imaginary^2)) (atan2 imaginary real) main :: IO () main = do let real = 4.0 let imaginary = 3.0 let complex = convertToComplex real imaginary putStrLn $ "Complex number: " ++ show complex

### Output

Complex number: 4.0 :+ 3.0

## Method 3: Using the :+ operator

In this method, we can use the :+ operator to create a complex number, which takes a real number as the first argument and an imaginary number as the second argument.

### Algorithm

**Step 1**− ‘Data.Complex’ module is imported.**Step 2**− convertToComplex() function is defined using real and imaginary values, as real :+ imaginary**Step 3**− Program execution will be started from main function. The main() function has whole control of the program. It is written as, main = do.**Step 4**− The variables named, “real” and “imaginary” are being initialized. They will have the real and imaginary number value respectively, that is to be converted into a complex number.**Step 5**− convertToComplex() function is being called and real & imaginary value will be passed as parameter to it.**Step 6**− Final resultant converted complex number value is displayed.

### Example

In the following example, we are going to learn how to use :+ operator to convert a number into complex number

import Data.Complex convertToComplex :: Double -> Double -> Complex Double convertToComplex real imaginary = real :+ imaginary main :: IO () main = do let real = 4.0 let imaginary = 3.0 let complex = convertToComplex real imaginary putStrLn $ "Complex number: " ++ show complex

### Output

Complex number: 4.0 :+ 3.0

## Conclusion

In Haskell, the number can be converted into complex number by various methods including convertToComplex methods using mkPolar, rectangular functionc, etc.

In every approach, the real number that needs to be converted is passed and once you have entered the real number, it will add the predefined real and imaginary values to the input real number, then the resulting complex number will be printed to the screen in the form of (real :+ imaginary).
