# Algebra of Vectors

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]
I am not sure if this is the correct way of finding the difference between two vectors. I thought that if "B" was negative then it's direction would change as well as it's angle. If the angle changes then are my calculations wrong (I used original angle)? I was also curious to know if a similar process applies when multiplying two vectors?

You can think of $-\vec B$ as a force of "magnitude" -B in the direction of $\vec B$, or as a force of magnitude B swung round through 180 degrees from $\vec B$. But don't mix the two.
