OC = 2u + 4v OD = -3a + 2b OE = -2a - 2b OF = -4a - 2b

I suspect that advancedfunctions2010 "eye-balled" the horizontal and vertical multiples of a and b and so might be completely wrong. However, that is the basic idea. (You want "a" and "b", not "u" and "v" for the first one, of course.)
Sorry, it was on a grid that I didnt draw. Silly of me lol. Thanks all tho
