#### Explanation:

Assuming that we are given P(-2, 5) and Q(1, 3), we can use the following formula to calculate the commonly used "i and j form" of the vector:

Notice it's very similar to the slope formula, but written in point notation and using "<" instead of parentheses.

Now let's solve:

Should you want to go on to find the magnitude of the vector, you would use the formula
