### Example Question #1 : Find A Direction Vector When Given Two Points

Find the directional vector of if points A and B are and , respectively.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find vector , the point A is the terminal point and point B is the starting point.

The directional vector can be determined by subtracting the start from the terminal point.

### Example Question #1 : Find A Direction Vector When Given Two Points

Find the vector through the points

and .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

The correct vector is given by the subtraction of the two points: .

Since the subtraction here is component-wise, it is given by the formula: .

This results in the vector .

The vector is also correct as it is a scalar multiple of the vector marked as correct, it is found by reversing the order of the subtraction of the two points.

### Example Question #3 : Find A Direction Vector When Given Two Points

Find the vector that has the initial point and the terminal point .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the directional vector, subtract the coordinates of the initial point from the coordinates of the terminal point.

### Example Question #4 : Find A Direction Vector When Given Two Points

Find the direction vector with an initial point of and a terminal point .

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the directional vector, subtract the coordinates of the initial point from the coordinates of the terminal point.

### Example Question #1 : Find A Direction Vector When Given Two Points
