Today’s theme is solving geometric problems through the use of vectors (or complex numbers). The idea is to translate the geometric conditions to algebraic equations, and then solve the problem by doing algebraic calculations.

If this sounds like analytic geometry, it does share the same philosophy. The approach with vectors, however, has the advantage of not using coordinates. This makes for nicer, cleaner, calculations.
