2. 2. <ul><li>Example: </li></ul><ul><li>Write the ratio of 3000 m to 1500 m in the form </li></ul><ul><li>of a:b. </li></ul><ul><li>Answer: </li></ul>Read as, two is to one.
3. 3. <ul><li>How does ratio relate to vector? </li></ul><ul><li>Look at the next example </li></ul><ul><li>so that you can see why </li></ul><ul><li>ratio is related to vector. </li></ul>
4. 4. <ul><li>Example: </li></ul><ul><li>In the diagram, PQR is a triangle. T is point on </li></ul><ul><li>such that 4 PS = SQ . Given that 5 a and 4 b </li></ul><ul><li>, determine each of the following vectors in term of </li></ul><ul><li>a and b . </li></ul><ul><li>a) </li></ul><ul><li>b) </li></ul>P S R T Q
