Vector - basic operations

There are given points A [-9; -2] B [2; 16] C [16; -2] and D [12; 18]

a. Determine the coordinates of the vectors u=AB v=CD s=DB
b. Calculate the sum of the vectors u + v
c. Calculate difference of vectors u-v
d. Determine the coordinates of the vector w = -7.u


Correct answer:

ux =  11
uy =  18
vx =  -4
vy =  20
sx =  10
sy =  2
(u+v)x =  7
(u+v)y =  38
(u-v)x =  15
(u-v)y =  -2
wx =  -77
wy =  -126

Step-by-step explanation:

u=(2(9);16(2))=(11;18)
uy=16(2)=18
s=(12(2);18(16))=(10;2)
vy=18(2)=20
sx=12(2)=10
sy=18(16)=2
u+v=(11+(4);18+(20))=(7;38)
(u+v)y=18+(20)=38
uv=(11(4);18(20))=(15;2)
(uv)y=18(20)=2
w=7.u=(7(11);7(18))=(77;126)
wy=7 (18)=126



We will be pleased if You send us any improvements to this math problem. Thank you!
