I'm trying to understand the concept of vectors. Vectors have magnitude and a direction. When I read vector with some values(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

\textbf{x} = \left(\begin{array}{c}x_1\\x_2\\x_3\end{array}\right) = \left(\begin{array}{c}1\\2\\3\end{array}\right)

[/tex]

I'm not sure what these values are. Are the values points in the vector? Would I be wrong to imagine in a x,y graph, the values in this matrix are the values of y?
