Greetings Pythonistas

How do you guys go about with Vector types in python?

I understand VS had a native Vector type in python and multiplying/dividing? or adding/subtracting could be done directly in VS without external functions.

Am I right to assume that this is not the case for python? That adding/multiplying/etc two vectors would require a custom/external function?


v1 = (1, 4)
v2 = (4, 9)

#v1 * v2 would not work
#you'd need a custom function?

def vector_multiply(vec1, vec2):
   DP = (vec1[0]*vec2[0], vec1[1]*vec2[1])
   return DP
