    Graph vectors using Maple?

    Does anyone know how to graph vectors in Maple? I need to graph the vectors (-2, -3) and (3.59808, -.23205). I found a graph but can't do anything with it. Maple Help is very hard for me to understand, as everything is explained in code. Thank you!

    Does it have to be Maple? GeoGebra is free software, and if I'm understanding your problem correctly, it's pretty easy to make it do what you need.

    If you have to use Maple, try the arrow command in the plots package:

    Code:
    restart:
    with(plots):
    arrow(<-2,-3>);
    arrow(<3.59808,-.23205>);
    If you want to specify the start and end of the arrows, use two Maple vectors. e.g. from (1,3) to (-2,5):

    Code:
    arrow(<1,3>,<-2,5>);
    I'm a math major, and to keep in practice with creating professional looking math documents, I type all of my homework in LaTeX. I use GeoGebra and a screen capture utility for many of my illustrations.

    PS Can you tell that I like GeoGebra?

    Thank you! Can I do two vectors on the same graph?

    Thanks so much! The instructions for maple blew me away. Do you know if there is any way to get both individual vectors on the same graph?
