How to Graph Vector Sums and Differences in GeoGebra

You can use GeoGebra to draw the sum and difference of vectors:

GeoGebra Instruction 1

Open Algebra View and Graphics View under GeoGebra icon View in GeoGebra icon Menu.
Create three points A, B and C.
Use Vector GeoGebra icon to make the vector from A to B, the vector from B to C, and the vector from A to C.

You can see from the figure you have made that AB + BC = AC. You can also see that AC AB = BC.
