    I got confused with the A(2,0) what's the A for

    A just names the point.... this point is called A and it is defined as (2,0)

    How would you do it for initial of A(1,1) and u = (1,2)?

    a vector is just an arrow pointing in the direction of the slope.. to get from an initial point to another point; add the vector to the point to get the other way around; subtract the vector from the point
