This program takes two complex numbers as structures and adds them with the use of functions.

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following C++ programming topics:

```
// Complex numbers are entered by the user
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
typedef struct complex
{
float real;
float imag;
} complexNumber;
complexNumber addComplexNumbers(complex, complex);
int main()
{
complexNumber n1, n2, temporaryNumber;
char signOfImag;
cout << "For 1st complex number," << endl;
cout << "Enter real and imaginary parts respectively:" << endl;
cin >> n1.real >> n1.imag;
cout << endl << "For 2nd complex number," << endl;
cout << "Enter real and imaginary parts respectively:" << endl;
cin >> n2.real >> n2.imag;
signOfImag = (temporaryNumber.imag > 0) ? '+' : '-';
temporaryNumber.imag = (temporaryNumber.imag > 0) ? temporaryNumber.imag : -temporaryNumber.imag;
temporaryNumber = addComplexNumbers(n1, n2);
cout << "Sum = " << temporaryNumber.real << temporaryNumber.imag << "i";
return 0;
}
complexNumber addComplexNumbers(complex n1,complex n2)
{
complex temp;
temp.real = n1.real+n2.real;
temp.imag = n1.imag+n2.imag;
return(temp);
}
```

**Output**

Enter real and imaginary parts respectively: 3.4 5.5 For 2nd complex number, Enter real and imaginary parts respectively: -4.5 -9.5 Sum = -1.1-4i

In the problem, two complex numbers entered by the user is stored in structures `n1` and `n2`.

These two structures are passed to `addComplexNumbers()`

function which calculates the sum and returns the result to the `main()`

function.

Finally, the sum is displayed from the `main()`

function.
