I've spent far too much time with this one:

Describe geometrically the sets of points z in the complex plane defined by the following relation:

Re(az+b) > 0 (where a and b are complex)

I have a line with a slope of Re(a)/Im(a) and a y-intercept of Re(b)/Im(a). So what?

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

the +b is just a translation, the hard part is the az. Try polar coordinates.
