    Express the vector with initial point P and terminal point Q in component form. Show work.

    12. P(1,1), Q(9,9)
    Solution. Given the initial point P(x1,y1) and terminal point Q(x2, y2). Then the vector
    PQ=(x2-x1, y2-y1)
    In this question, x1=y1=1, x2=y2=9. So,
    PQ=( x2-x1, y2-y1) = (8, 8)

    14. P(-1,3), Q(-6,-1)
    Solution. Given the initial point P(x1,y1) and terminal point Q(x2, y2). Then the vector
    PQ=(x2-x1, y2-y1)
    In this question, x1=-1, y1=3, x2=-6, y2=-1. So,
    PQ=( x2-x1, y2-y1)
    =(-6-(-1), -1-3)
    = (-5, -4)

    16. P(-8, -6), Q(-1, -1)
    Solution. Given the initial point P(x1,y1) and terminal ...
