**Solve vector addition problems**

Solve the following vector additions graphically and numerically:

i. $\vec{A} + \vec{B} = \vec{C}$, if $\vec{A} = 10 m$ [E], $\vec{B} = 7 m$ [E].

ii. $\vec{v}_{1} + \vec{v}_{2} = \vec{v}_{res}$ if $\vec{v}_{1} = 4.5 m/s$ [E], $\vec{v}_{2} = 13.2 m/s$ [W]

**Solve vector subtraction problems**

$\Delta \vec{d}_{1} = 1.2 km$ [N], $\Delta \vec{d}_{2} = 0.8 km$ [N]. Solve the equation $\Delta \vec{d}_{1} - \Delta \vec{d}_{2} = \Delta \vec{d}_{res}$ graphically and numerically.**Solve vector multiplication and division problems**

$\vec{D} = 12 m/s$ [W]. Solve the following graphically and numerically:i. $3\vec{D} = \vec{E}$

ii. -$\frac{\vec{D}}{2} = \vec{F}$

**Create Vector Equation and Diagram from Word Problem**

A city block is 50 m long. While doing errands, Tia walks 1 block east, then three fifths of a block west, then two blocks east.

i. Write the displacement vector $\Delta \vec{d}_{block}$ that describes walking 1 block east.

ii. Describe this situation with a vector equation and a vector diagram in terms of $\Delta \vec{d}_{block}$

iii. Find Tia's overall displacement.
