# convert imaginary () to number

Convert imaginary () to number

**convert imaginary () to number** is a reporter block in Extra Mathematics that reports the imaginary part of a complex number (ex. 1 + 2i [which would be `{"real":1,"imaginary":2}`

] would report 2).

## Workaround

This block can be worked around by reporting the imaginary key of the number:

define convert imaginary (im) to number return (get [imaginary] from (im)::#0fbd8c)::custom cap

The convert imaginary () to number block would be used where the actual block is used.
