What shape is formed by these vectors?

Almost immediately, we notice that we have two 𝐮 vectors and two 𝐯 vectors. The two 𝐯 vectors have the same direction and magnitude, and that means that they are parallel. This would also be true of the two 𝐮 vectors. They are parallel to one another. And any shape that’s formed by two sets of parallel lines we call a parallelogram. Based on the given information, we can call this shape a parallelogram.
