Draw \(\vec{a}\) anywhere on the coordinate plane. The origin seems like a convenient starting point

Draw \(-\vec{b}\), the opposite of \(\vec{b}\), and connect the tail of this vector to the head of \(\vec{a}\).

Draw \(\vec{a}-\vec{b}\), the resultant vector, by starting the tail of this vector at the tail of \(\vec{a}\) and by having the head connect to the head of \(\vec{b}\).

Now, you're done!
