i isn’t in the set of reals without you first modding out by an ideal. Either way, many calculators can do calculations with i. In the complex numbers, i is the imaginary unit, so its decimal form could be represented by a vector of real decimals (0, 1)

Learn about matrices first bro.
Complex numbers can be used to think about rotations. They are applied in electrical engineering, optics, etc.. anything with waves, so everything.

There is nothing more "Real" about the reals. They are numbers, logical constructions. Also the complex numbers extend the reals, and unify things like square roots (that produce two values) into one object.

It is rigorous. Read up on ring theory and injecting elements into the set via quotient rings and identifying elements with the first isomorphism theorem.
Someone will say “wahhh it’s really the solution to x^2 - 1 = 0” but we can rigorously identify this this by adjoining an element which has the same properties as though x = sqrt( -1 )

This is why people make fun of physishits. Smarter than engineers but not as useful, and yet not nearly as informed or smart as people who actually know the math.
Complex numbers are well defined as their own “canonical structure” in math, useful in many other contexts other than physics, and are interesting in their own right as a pure object.
