QUESTION: Is it permissible to omit the arrows and bold these vectors? _% _;,p_;,q _: Or must the 5-step rule be applied? _% ",p,q<$33@o] _: Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files.

A vector is a single quantity–often denoted by one letter–having direction as well as magnitude. The pairs of capital letters with a single-barb right-pointing arrow are line segments. And I believe your Nemeth Code notation for those with the arrows is spot on (for example: _% ",p,q<$33@o] _:) Please let us know if you need anything more or different. –Kyle Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) Everyone is free to read the forums, but only current NBA members can post.
