  7. How do you add and subtract vectors?
    Place tip-to-tail in their respected directions and draw a new vector originating from the first vector's origin.
  8. How do you find th vector between two points?
    Take the new components minus the old components.
  9. When are two vectors orthogonal?
    If and only if their dot product = 0.
