vector a=4x-3y and vector b=2x+6y. What is the magnitude and direction of vector c=b-2a

Oct 18th, 2017

a = 4x - 3y       b = 2x + 6y

c= b - 2a

c = 2x + 6y - 2(4x - 3y)

c = 2x + 6y - 8x + 6y

c = - 6x + 12y

Magnitude = √[(-6)^2 + (12)^2]

                  = √[36 + 144]

                  = √180

                  = √36*5

                  = √36 * √5

Magnitude = 6√5

Direction vector = c / Magnitude

                           = - 6x + 12y / 6√5

                           = - 6x/6√5 + 12y/6√5

Direction vector = - 1/√5 x   +   2/√5 y
