The affix of a complex number $ z $ is the name given to the form $ a + ib $ of the complex number, with $ a $ the real part (coordinate $ x $) and $ b $ the imaginary part (coordinate $ y $) in the complex plan.
The term affix is less and less used today because it is generally replaced by the general term complex number.
The affix calculation can be performed from the position of the number in the complex plane:
Example: An point with abscissae $ 2 $ (x-axis, real part) and ordinate $ 3 $ (y-axis, imaginary part) in the complex plane has the affix $ z = 2 + 3 i $
The calculation can also come from a vector of the plane.
The affix of a vector is the complex number equivalent to it (same coordinates in the complex plane)
Example: A vector of the complex plane with components $ (4,2) $ has the affix $ z = 4 + 2 i $
