The Graphical Method for Vector Addition and Scalar Multiplication Graphical Addition Consider the vectors u = (3, 4) and v = (4, 1) in the plane. From the component method of vector addition we know that the sum of these two vectors is u + v = (7, 5). Graphically, we see that this is the same as the result we would get by "picking up" one of
