## Our first dip into a new way of thinking

Now let’s take the same two equations as last time, but view them in a slightly different way. Call this the column view of the system.

$x\underbrace{ \begin{bmatrix}2 \\ -1 \end{bmatrix}}_\mathrm{first \ vector} +\ y \underbrace{ \begin{bmatrix}-1 \\ 2 \end{bmatrix}}_\mathrm{second \ vector} = \underbrace{ \begin{bmatrix}0 \\ 3 \end{bmatrix}}_{resultant \ \mathrm{vector}}$
