I reviewed this page by playing around with 3 of the vectors: The Area of a Parallelogram (1), Ceva's Theorem, Angle Bisector. i spent about ~10 minutes on this page. the "Angle Bisector" one reminds me a bow in archery, so i naturally found that one very interesting. "Angle Bisector" can be used to explain how the bow mechanism works. this page was very easy to used

I wish I knew about this site in general sooner. The information displayed in the site is both easy to use and fun. Vectors are a part of Adobe Illustrator which is why I came to look at them in specific. It is plain to see the reason file sizes remain small. To see that most of the equations are based on ratios creates minimal points to obtain an accurate representation of lines.
