    move it so one end is at 0,0 and find the length

    (0,3) (7,-3) -3 -3 ------------ (0,0) (7,-6) so this is a vector <7,-6>

    since vectors are movable; i just moved it all down so that it started as 0,0 and becmae a position vector

    if there are more points along the way that you have not shared; then its kinda hard to include them; but the displacement is the same

    Is the graph, not to scale? are those points suppose to be at 7, -6?
