Main Concept

Vectors  quantities have both magnitude and  direction.

Vectors can only be subtracted from other vectors.

Given two vectors a and b, their difference can be written as .

Vector subtraction can be viewed as vector addition.

By placing two vectors tip-to-tip the difference between the vectors can be found.
