    that is component form. The amount from tail to tip on the horizontal is written with i, and that is added to the amount from tail to tip on the vertical written with j

    it doesnt matter right. 3 + 2 = 5 and 2 + 3 = 5. if you label it correctly with i and j you can write it anyway you want

    hmm, ok always write i first. You can remember this by just thinking alphabetically or x before y. 3i + 6j is equal to <3,6>
