## Problem 3.1: Rank the 5 vectors

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Five vectors are shown on the coordinate grid **(position is given in meters)**. You can change the position of a vector by click-dragging at the base of the vector. Click restart to return the vectors to their original positions.

- Rank the x components of the five vectors shown (smallest to largest).
- Rank the y components of the five vectors shown (smallest to largest).
- What are the components of the vector that results when Vector B is added to Vector D?
