## Vector Subtraction Formula

The following equation is used to calculate a new vector from the subtraction of one vector from another.

X3,Y3,Z3 = X1-X2,Y1-Y2,Z1-Z2

Where x,y, and z are the coordinate points of all three vectors with x3,y3, and z3 being the coordinate values of the new vector.

## Vector Subtraction Definition

Vector subtraction is the process of subtracting the values of two or more different vectors.
