3. Determine that the vectors u=[t, 4, 2t+1] and v=[t+2, 1t, 1] are perpendicular, find the possible values of the contant, t.

MathMate,
Same as previous question,

Except that the dotproduct equated to zero results in a quadratic equation.
So solve for possible values of t by solving the quadratic. 
Calculus 
j,
t(t+2) + 4(1t)  (2t+1) = 0
t = 1,3
like that? 
Calculus 
MathMate,
Correct!

Calculus 
j,
thanks
