1. Yes, you are correct.

Vectors have no specific location in space.their only attribute is:

magnitude ie lenght.

&

direction ie orientation

2. i got a 1 !

a point and a terminal vector (the ones in math and physics) are completely different, but a point and a vector (the vector that is the abstract idea of a quantity with a bunch of components) are the same because a point, no matter what basis you are in, is still a quantity which is made up of components. right? That's the only way to explain why vectors are used to represent points so much. oh well I'm not arguing over this too much but i think im right. I haven't seen anyone develop a point class: they just use vector.
Actually, no. A point isn't just "a quantity made up of components." It's a "a quantity made up of components which represents a location." A vector represents direction with magnitude.

Just because a point has similar components to a vector doesn't change that simple fact. They are in no way the same no matter the context. If it makes it easier to think about, look at other ways of representing vectors. In 2D space you can represent a vector by an angle (IE in radians, degrees, etc.) and a magnitude. In that circumstance it's very easy to understand that a vector is not a point. The more common form of vector (with components similar to points) is the same thing as our other vector representation. It's just that it's more practical for us to represent the direction and magnitude through force along each axis rather than an angle measure with magnitude in most cases because it ends up allowing us to use less trigonemetric functions when dealing with them. Simply because the most common form of vector has similar components to a point does not, in any way, make it a point.

A comparison I can make that may also help you out is comparing velocity to acceleration to jerk. Each one can be represented by a single scalar. Does that make them the same? Not at all. A point and a vector both usually have the same number of components. Does that make them the same? Not at all.

The reason most people don't make the distinction is because they don't understand them fully (which is an unnervingamount of mathematically educated people) or because they are lazy and they just want to get a program up and running really quickly.

EDIT: a plane specifically means 2 dimensions, but what is the word that specifically means 3 dimensions? cube? lol
Trust me, you knew this.
Ever hear of "space?"

4. Way to go Rod
poymorphic you are a walking and talking math book .how do you

keep up with all this info.? you must be dreaming math in sleep.

now, i have a question presented to Polymorphic ;

if we add a point object to another point object the result would be:

a-a point

b-serves no meaning

c-something else

if you get the correct answer which i think you will. can you elaborate on it too?
thx

5. It actually depends.

USUALLY adding points is considered an undefined operation, but when the points are scaled and added in such a way that the coefficients when added together equal one, then it's an affine combination (a way of representing a single point based on the "weights" of other points).
