# Adding vectors

Adding - Just ADD

JUST position the first vector &

ADD the second vector

**Example 1**

Add vector `a` to vector `b`

Place the first vector `a` and add on the second vector.

The result is a new vector `c`

**NOTE:**

It doesn't matter in which order you add the vectors.

Try adding `b+a`

`a+b=c` and `b+a=c`

ANOTHER way of showing that `a+b=b+a` is as follows:

**Example 2**

`a+b=b+a`

**Example 3**

Vector `r=a+b+c+d+e`

Also

Vector `r=c+a+d+b+e`

And also

Vector `r=e+c+b+d+a`

You can ADD IN ANY ORDER.
