    Hey.
    Im a bit confused on question 5(ii).
    If the the vector is -b wouldnt it be drawn the other way such that AOB from part (i) is no longer the included angle?

    I'm not sure whether you're aware of the fact that \vec{AB} = \vec{OB} - \vec{OA}. That is, the \mathbf{a}-\mathbf{b} means the line connecting the points \mathbf{a} to \mathbf{b}.

    I've written up a long explanation of why the above is true here.

    (BTW, why have you been ignoring the replies to your threads? Such as here, here, here and here. Just to let you know, if you understood someones reply, it's good practice to reply and let them know that you've understood! )
