Abstract

In courses on analytic geometry, basic operations with vectors in three-dimensional Euclidean space are studied. If some basis in the space is fixed, then a one-to-one correspondence between geometric vectors and ordered triples of real numbers (the coordinates of vectors in the basis) is determined, and algebraic operations with vector coordinates can be substituted for geometric operations with the vectors themselves.
