Representation of vectors

A two-dimensional vector v running from the origin to a point can be represented as a pair consisting of an x-coordinate and a y-coordinate. Implement a data abstraction for vectors by giving a constructor make-vect and corresponding selectors xcor-vect and ycor-vect. In terms of your selectors and constructor, implement procedures add-vect, sub-vect, and scale-vect that perform the operations vector addition, vector subtraction, and multiplying a vector by a scalar:

(x1, y1) + (x2, y2) = (x1 + x2, y1 + y2)
(x1, y1) − (x2, y2) = (x1 − x2, y1 − y2)
           s·(x, y) = (sx, sy)
