In mathematics, a vector (from the Latin word "vehere" meaning "to carry") is a geometric entity that has magnitude (or length) and direction. Vectors can be added to other vectors according to vector algebra. Vectors play an important role in physics, engineering, and mathematics.
In mathematics, a vector (from the Latin word "vehere" which means "to carry") is a geometric object that has a magnitude (or length) and direction. A vector can be thought of as an arrow in Euclidean space, drawn from the origin of the space to a point, and denoted by a letter. The magnitude of the vector is the distance from the origin to the point, and the direction is the angle between the direction of the vector and the axis, measured counterclockwise.

to the given problem, we want to find the some of the given vectors and illustrated geometrically. So we're gonna have 3 -1 is our first factor, And then we're gonna have a negative 1, 5 is a second victor. So then when we create this, okay, little graham right here, this is what's known as the parallelogram role. Um and then we see that this is gonna be a little bit further And then this one is going to, If this was 3 -1 And -15, we bring this down. So we end up getting I'll bring us a little mark, so it's gonna come right about here and then this is going to come up. So what we end up getting is the vector right here, and that vector is going to be 24
