## Definition

Informally, an element of an $n$-dimensional vector space is often referred to as an **$n$-dimensional vector**.

It must be understood that this is no more than a convenient shorthand.

It is not the *vector* which possesses the dimensionality, but the *space in which it is embedded*.
