    Adding Vectors

    Just a quick question. In the attachment, I have a parallelogram with a division in the middle. If \vec{ao}+\vec{oc}=\vec{ac}, does the same answer occur if the sum is changed to \vec{oc}+\vec{ao}?

    Many thanks.

    Addition is commitive: \vec{ao}+\vec{oc}=\vec{oc}+\vec{ao}~.
