$$\text{Let \vec{OA} = \vec{a} } \\ \text{Let \vec{OB} = \vec{b} } \\ \text{Let \vec{OM} = \frac12\vec{OB} = \frac12 \vec{b} } \\ \text{Let \vec{AP} = k\vec{AB}  }$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline AN = 2\cdot OA \quad & \Rightarrow & \quad \vec{AN} = 2\vec{OA} \\ & & \quad \vec{AN} = 2\vec{a} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \vec{ON} &=& \vec{OA} + \vec{AN} \\ \vec{ON} &=& \vec{a} + 2\vec{a} \\ \vec{ON} &=& 3\vec{a} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

$$\vec{AB}=\ ?$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \vec{AB} &=& \vec{OB} - \vec{OA} \\ \mathbf{\vec{AB}} & \mathbf{=} & \mathbf{\vec{b} - \vec{a}} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \vec{AP} &=& k\vec{AB} \\ \mathbf{\vec{AP}} & \mathbf{=} & \mathbf{k(\vec{b}-\vec{a})} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

$$\vec{MN}=\ ?$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \vec{MN} &=& \vec{ON}-\vec{OM} \\ \mathbf{\vec{MN}} & \mathbf{=} & \mathbf{3\vec{a}-\frac12\vec{b}} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

$$\vec{MP}=\ ?$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \vec{MP} &=& \vec{OA} + \vec{AP} - \vec{OM} \\ \vec{MP} &=& \vec{a} + k(\vec{b}-\vec{a}) - \frac12 \vec{b} \\ \vec{MP} &=& \vec{a}-k\vec{a} + k\vec{b} - \frac12 \vec{b} \\ \mathbf{\vec{MP}} & \mathbf{=} & \mathbf{ \vec{a}(1-k) +\vec{b}(k-\frac12) } \\ \hline \end{array}$$
