Non-calculus vector math

How can I perform elementary vector math in Mathematica? From what I've 
found, it's all Vector Calculus, but what about trivial/elementary vector 

Things like: "Particle A with position unit-vector of (3i+6j-1k) and 
velocity vector (1i-4j+5k)ms^-1 collides with Particle B 35 seconds after 
moving off from its initial position, where did it collide?"
