    magnitude is just the length of the vector... just take the distance between these two points. for direction, you'll need to split it up into its i and j components.

    GH = <5, 8> so its pointing in a northeast direction. magnitude = sqrt(25 + 64)

    to get the direction, solve for: tan x = 8/5
