    The vector sum is a mathematical operation that takes two vectors as input and returns a single vector as output. The resulting vector is obtained by placing the initial point of one vector at the terminal point of the other vector and then drawing a vector from the initial point of the first vector to the terminal point of the second vector. This operation, also simply called 'adding', follows the rules of both commutativity and associativity.
