# Chapter 12 - Matrices - 12-6 Vectors - Lesson Check: 5

All three vectors have the same magnitude. The magnitude of a vector $\vec{v}=\langle v_x,v_y\rangle$ is $|\vec{v}|=\sqrt{v_x^2+v_y^2}.$ Therefore, $$|\langle 3,4\rangle|=\sqrt{3^2+4^2}=5$$ $$|\langle -4,3\rangle|=\sqrt{(-4)^2+3^2}=5$$ $$|\langle 4,-3\rangle|=\sqrt{4^2+(-3)^2}=5.$$

#### Work Step by Step

The magnitude of a vector $\vec{v}=\langle v_x,v_y\rangle$ is $|\vec{v}|=\sqrt{v_x^2+v_y^2}.$ Therefore, $$|\langle 3,4\rangle|=\sqrt{3^2+4^2}=5$$ $$|\langle -4,3\rangle|=\sqrt{(-4)^2+3^2}=5$$ $$|\langle 4,-3\rangle|=\sqrt{4^2+(-3)^2}=5.$$
