My work:

LHS:

u (dot) (v + w)

= (2,2,-1) (dot) (4,6,8)

= [(2,2,-1) (dot) (3,-1,0)] + [(2,2,-1) (dot) (1,7,8)]

= [u (dot) v] + [u (dot) w]

Therefore, LHS = RHS

Did I prove this question correctly?

**drwls**, Wednesday, February 27, 2008 at 6:50amYou should calculate the numerical values for each side and show that thay are the same.

12 (left side)= 4 + 8 (right side)

Although the give you specific numerical values for u, v and w, the relationship is true in general.
