Calculate the dot product of two vectors:
m = [4,5,-1] and n = [6,-2,7]

  • Calculus -

    The Dot Product is a scalar (number)

    (4 * 5) + (5 * -2) + (-1 * 7)
    20 + -10 + -7
    10 + -7
    3

    Oops, sorry about that, the correct answer is 7

    (4 * 6) + (5 * -2) + (-1 * 7)
    24 + (-10) + (-7)
    14 + (-7)
    7

    7.
