If u and v are the vectors below, find the vector w whose tail is at the point halfway from the tip of v to the tip of u and whose head is at the point halfway from the tip of u to the tip of uv.
u = (2,4,5)
v = (3, 5, 1)
answer: (2, 7, 3/2)

To find halfway between u and v, calculate uv and divide by 2. To find halway from u to uv, calculate u(uv) and divide by 2. Subtract the two points you get and there's your answer!

when you say divide by 2, do you mean multiply each number by 1/2?

u = (2,4,5) v = (3, 5, 1)I don't know if I'm too late... (uv) = (1,9,4) P=1/2(uv) = (1/2,9/2,2) u(uv) = (3,5,1) Q=1/2(u(uv))=(3/2,5/2,1/2) PQ=(2,7,3/2) Make sense?
