Given the vectors A = 2.00i + 8.00j and B = 4.00i - 5.00j, do the following.

(a) Draw the vector sum C= A+ B and the vector difference D= A- B.

(b) Calculate C and D, first in terms of unit vectors.

Calculate C and D in terms of polar coordinates, with angles measured with respect to the +x axis.
