Algebraic Representation of vectors
In order to do more complex calculations with vectors, we need to understand their algebraic representation. While the geometric representation of vectors makes it easier for us to understand them, the algebraic representation makes it easier for us to perform simple calculations quickly such as addition and scalar multiplication. The algebraic representation uses the numerical components of the vector.
