Q. 5

# Find the coordina

Given A = (–1, 3) and B = (–2, 1)

We know position vector of a point (x, y) is given by , where and are unit vectors in X and Y directions.

Let position vectors of points A and B be and respectively. We also have .

Recall the vector is given by     Now, it is given that there exists a point say (x, y) whose position vector is same as .

We know position vector of a point (x, y) is given by .  By comparing both the sides, we get x = –1 and y = –2

Thus, (–1, –2) is the tip of position vector that is same as .
