DISPLACEMENT VECTORS

2. Relevant equations

r=xi+yj+zk=<x,y,z>

3. The attempt at a solution

For all of the problems I am starting to do class we must use the equation above.

I do not understand why we use i,j,k and how they are similar to x,y,z and how to use them.

Please help! I was absent the day we learned this and it is a fast pace class and I am trying to understand this but can't seem to fully do so!
