What must be true for two vectors to add up to ZERO? Choose all that apply.
1)Their ycomponents must be equal.
2)They must be antiparallel (point in opposite directions).
3) Their xcomponents must be equal.
4)They must be parallel (point in the same direction).
5) They must have equal magnitudes.
6) They must have opposite magnitudes
