**Vector Addition: Head-to-Tail Method**

**Draw**an arrow to represent the first**vector**(9 blocks to the east) using a ruler and protractor.- Now
**draw**an arrow to represent the second**vector**(5 blocks to the north). - If there are more than two
**vectors**, continue this process for each**vector**to be added.

Moreover, how do you add two vectors together?

To **add** or subtract two **vectors**, **add** or subtract the corresponding components. Let →u=?u1,u**2**? and →v=?v1,v**2**? be two **vectors**. The sum of two or more **vectors** is called the resultant. The resultant of two **vectors** can be found using either the parallelogram method or the triangle method .

Secondly, what does subtracting vectors mean? **Vector subtraction is** the process of taking a **vector** difference, and **is** the inverse operation to **vector** addition.

Also question is, how do you add coordinates to a vector?

To **add** the two **vectors**, **add** them in **coordinate** form: (3.5, 3.5) + (5.7, 4.0) = (9.2, 7.5). Convert (9.2, 7.5) into magnitude/angle form. Apply the equation theta = tan^{–}^{1}(y/x) to find the angle, which is tan^{–}^{1}(7.5/9.2) = tan^{–}^{1}(0.82) = 39 degrees.

How are vectors subtracted?

To **subtract** two **vectors**, you put their feet (or tails, the non-pointy parts) together; then draw the resultant **vector**, which is the difference of the two **vectors**, from the head of the **vector** you're **subtracting** to the head of the **vector** you're **subtracting** it from.
