You put in transform.position = Vector3() or you can put a Vector3 into other transform functions such as Translate(). Note below, you could also create a variable for a Vector3 and insert that into any of these places.

So it might say something like:

function Update () { //You can say Vector3.up for everyone of these, but for teaching //purposes I wrote it out.

  //Also note you would only use one of these at a time or you would get
  //strange results.

  transform.position = Vector3(0, 1, 0); //places the object one up in world space.

  transform.position += Vector3(0, 1, 0); //more complicated.  moves the object up one meter per frame.

  transform.Translate(Vector3(0,1,0));  //same as above but using translate instead.

  transform.Translate(Vector3(0 , 1, 0) * Time.deltaTime);  // Same as above,
  //but each component of the Vector is multiplied by 1/FPS to create movement 
  //in meters per second.


The reference also has several examples of Vector3's to check out.

Im having trouble. Im trying to fire a bullet from a moving enemy.

So I instantiate the bullet at the enemies current position, but for some reason, my transform.Translate(Vector3(1,0,0)*Time.deltaTime);

sends the bullet in the negative X direction instead of positive. Is it because the enemy is moving?
