}

void draw() {
  ellipse(v1.x, v1.y, 12, 12);
  ellipse(v2.x, v2.y, 12, 12);

Description Adds x, y, and z components to a vector, adds one vector to another, or adds two independent vectors together. The version of the method that adds two vectors together is a static method and returns a new PVector, the others act directly on the vector itself. See the examples for more context.
Syntax
.add(v)
.add(x, y)
.add(x, y, z)
.add(v1, v2)
.add(v1, v2, target)
Parameters
v PVector: the vector to be added
x float: x component of the vector
y float: y component of the vector
z float: z component of the vector
v1 PVector: a vector
v2 PVector: another vector
target PVector: the target vector (if null, a new vector will be created)
ReturnsPVector
