Homework Help: Math - explanation

Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at 4:42pm.

This is an example in the text book.

Using vectors, demonstrate that the three points A(5, -1), B(-3,4) and C(13,-6) are collinear.

Solution
AB = (-8, 5)
BC = (16, -10)
Then BC = 2AB

AB and BC have the opposite direction, so the points A, B, and C must be collinear.

I don't understand how AB = (-8, 5) and
BC = (16, -10)
