Adding Vectors | Linear Algebra | Chegg Tutors

A vector is a quantity with both magnitude and direction. To add two vectors, you’ll need to decompose each vector into its x and y components, i.e. (x1, y1) and (x2, y2), and use the sums of each component, ie.(x1 + x2, y1 + y2), to determine your resulting vector, i.e. (x3, y3).

In the examples described by Chegg Linear Algebra tutor, Justin R., Justin walks through the problem step-by-step and shows us how to plot each vector on a 2D graph. He also walks through a helpful tip for adding vectors on the graph itself by positioning vector 2’s tail on vector 1’s head. See for yourself in this Chegg tutorial.
