Representing vectors

You can represent vectors in 3 ways:

`a` or `vec (AB)` or `((3),(4))`
Lower case letter   Captials with an arrow above   Column

 

As follows

The values of a vector can be represented in 3 different ways 

Further examples

 

Example 1

There are three vectors making this triangle A,B and C 

This triangle is made up of three vectors:

`a`,  `b`  and `c`

 

Example 2

This triangle also contains three vectors but is represented differently to the one above 

This triangle is made up of three vectors:

`vec (AB)`, `vec (BC)`  and `vec (CA)`

 

Example 3

This triangle is also represented differently but showing values in columns 

This triangle is made up of three vectors:

`((2),(3))`  and `((2),(-3))`  and `((-3),(0))`
