# 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

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:

$u=\left(2-\left(-9\right);16-\left(-2\right)\right)=\left(11;18\right)$
${u}_{y}=16-\left(-2\right)=18$
$s=\left(12-\left(2\right);18-\left(16\right)\right)=\left(10;2\right)$
${v}_{y}=18-\left(-2\right)=20$
${s}_{x}=12-\left(2\right)=10$
${s}_{y}=18-\left(16\right)=2$
$u+v=\left(11+\left(-4\right);18+\left(20\right)\right)=\left(7;38\right)$
$\left(u+v{\right)}_{y}=18+\left(20\right)=38$
$u-v=\left(11-\left(-4\right);18-\left(20\right)\right)=\left(15;-2\right)$
$\left(u-v{\right)}_{y}=18-\left(20\right)=-2$
$w=-7.u=\left(-7\cdot \left(11\right);-7\cdot \left(18\right)\right)=\left(-77;-126\right)$ Did you find an error or inaccuracy? Feel free to write us. Thank you! Tips to related online calculators
Line slope calculator is helpful for basic calculations in analytic geometry. The coordinates of two points in the plane calculate slope, normal and parametric line equation(s), slope, directional angle, direction vector, the length of the segment, intersections of the coordinate axes, etc.
Our vector sum calculator can add two vectors given by their magnitudes and by included angle.
