Example Question #90 : Vector

Given points  and , what is the vector form of the distance between the points?

 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

In order to derive the vector form of the distance between two points, we must find the difference between the , , and elements of the points.

That is, for any point and , the distance is the vector .

Subbing in our original points  and , we get:
