### Example Question #77 : Vector Addition

Find the vector sum , where  and .

Explanation:

If  and , then the vector  , called the "sum" of two vectors, is defined by the sum of its respective components; that is,

.

We have  and . By the definition of the "sum" of two vectors, the vector  can be calculated as follows:

.

Hence, .
