Any two vectors $\vec{a}$ and $\vec{b}$ that point to the same direction

Work Step by Step

We construct two vectors $\vec{a}$ and $\vec{b}$ that point in the +y direction, for example, $\vec{a} = <0,1>$ and $\vec{b} = <0,5>$. Then, $\vec{a} + \vec{b} = \vec{c} = <0,6>$ and $|a| + |b| = |c| = 1 + 5 = 6$
