# Gr 12 math

I need to calculate the volume of a parallelepiped using the scalar triple product. I can do this if i have vectors. however instead we've been given 8 points which mark the corners. HELPPP this is the question:

Calculate the volume of the parallelepiped with vertices at:

(9,4,3), (7,12,2), (12,5,6), (3,-4,0), (10,13,5), (1,4,-1), (4,5,2) and (6,-3,3)

Using properties of the triple scalar product and triple vector product, prove that (a ^ b)  (c ^ d) = (a  *c)(b * d) - (a * d)(b * c): [Hint: start by thinking of (a ^ b)  (c ^ d) as (a ^ b)  e, where e = c ^ d]
