Which, if any, of the following
−−→
A.
−QP ,
B.
P Q ,
are representations of vectors when P, Q
are points in 3space?
1. both of them
2. neither of them
3. A only correct
4. B only
Explanation:
−−→
A. TRUE: −QP is the displacement vector
having initial point P and terminal point Q.
B. FALSE: P Q is the line segment
from P to Q.

Find the vector v
having a representation
−−→
by the directed line segment AB with
respect to points A(3, −1) and B(−4, 3).
1. v
=
h−7, 4O correct
2. v
=
h−1, 2O
3. v
=
h−7, −4O
4. v
=
h1, 2O
5. v
=
h7, 4O
6. v
=
h−1, −2O
Explanation:
Since
−−→
AB
=
h−4 − 3, 3 + 1O ,
we see that
v
=
h−7, 4O
