IMPRODUCT

Returns the result of multiplying a series of complex numbers together.

Sample Usage

IMPRODUCT(A2:A100)

IMPRODUCT("1+2i",3,"4i")

IMPRODUCT("1+2i","3+5i",A2:A50)

Syntax

IMPRODUCT(factor1, [factor2, ...])

• factor1 - The first complex number or range to calculate for the product.
• factor2, ... - [ OPTIONAL ] - More complex numbers to multiply by.

Notes

• The product of two complex numbers is defined as follows:
• (a+bi)(c+di) = (ac-bd) + (ad+bc)i
• You can multiply complex numbers only if they have the same suffix (i or j). For example, you can't do IMPRODUCT("4+3i", "1+2j").

• COMPLEX: The COMPLEX function creates a complex number, given real and imaginary coefficients.
• IMREAL: Returns the real coefficient of a complex number.
• IMAGINARY: Returns the imaginary coefficient of a complex number.
• IMDIV: Returns one complex number divided by another.
• IMSUM: Returns the sum of a series of complex numbers or cells or both.
