Vector Interpretation of Complex Numbers

Here's how Fig.5.1 may be generated in matlab:

>> x = [2 3];                  % coordinates of x
>> origin = [0 0];             % coordinates of the origin
>> xcoords = [origin(1) x(1)]; % plot() expects coordinates
>> ycoords = [origin(2) x(2)];
>> plot(xcoords,ycoords);      % Draw a line from origin to x
