This is a very useful video, as I'm currently studying complex numbers at the university and perform some tasks using https://www.wolframalpha.com/examples... to get a clearer explanation and feedback from specialists. And it helps me in preparation of the marketing plan, that I found on https://answershark.com/writing/busin... as I was able to calculate many expensesю I hope this material will help me in further study.
