HSN-VM.B.4a

Add vectors end-to-end, component-wise, and by the parallelogram rule. Understand that the magnitude of a sum of two vectors is typically not the sum of the magnitudes.

HSN-VM.B.4b

Given two vectors in magnitude and direction form, determine the magnitude and direction of their sum.

HSN-VM.B.4c

Understand vector subtraction v â w as v + (âw), where âw is the additive inverse of w, with the same magnitude as w and pointing in the opposite direction. Represent vector subtraction graphically by connecting the tips in the appropriate order, and perform vector subtraction component-wise.
