Work with Vectors


You need to perform calculations with three-dimensional vectors.


Create your own simple vector class.


The .NET Framework does not include any built-in support for vector calculations. However, it’s quite easy to create a class to represent vectors. This class will include methods such as Add, Subtract, Multiply, and DivideBy, and well as a few vector-specific functions such as GetCrossProduct and GetDotProduct. In addition, the class will support cloning and comparing (useful for sorting arrays of vectors), and it will override the Equals method to perform value equality testing and ToString to provide an appropriate string representation.
