To multiply complex numbers, distribute each term and apply \( i^2 = -1 \). For instance, multiplying \( (2 + 3i) \) by \( (4 - 2i) \) involves calculating \( 8 + 12i - 4i - 6 = 14 + 8i \). This process is essential for mastering complex number multiplication. Further practice and guidance can be found in worksheets dedicated to multiply complex numbers to understand the process thoroughly.

Example: Multiply the complex numbers \( (1 + 2i) \) and \( (3 - i) \).
