# How do you draw a vector addition?

Vector Addition: Head-to-Tail Method
1. Draw an arrow to represent the first vector (9 blocks to the east) using a ruler and protractor.
2. Now draw an arrow to represent the second vector (5 blocks to the north).
3. 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,u2? and →v=?v1,v2? 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 = tan1(y/x) to find the angle, which is tan1(7.5/9.2) = tan1(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.
