vector activity 2


Answer the following questions based on the applet above.

1. Write vector EP in terms of vectors EA and AP. 2. How are vectors AP and AB related? 3. What do you notice about vectors AB and CD? 4. Use the slider b to move the point P between points A and B. Does the relationship you wrote in number 1 still hold? 5. Using vectors EA and CD along with b, write down an expression to determine the value of point P. 6. Hence, determine how to find vector EP using vector EA, vector AB, and b.
