Cartesian plane shown with two right-angled triangles ABC and A' B' C'.
Detailed description

The blue lines in the diagrams are called vectors. The vectors for this translation all have the same length and direction (and in some sense are all the same). This will always be the case for a given translation. Sometimes a column of numbers represents them.

The vector shown is \(\left[\large_{2}^{4}\right] \).
