t) Let a , b , c and y be the three dimensional vectors
a =4j +2k ,b =−3i +4j +4k ,c =3i −j ,y =8i −7j
Perform the following operations on these vectors:
(a) c⋅a +a⋅y =
(b) (a ⋅b )a =
(c) ((c⋅c)a )⋅a =

  1. I will try one. You try the rest.
    c dot a = 3i − 1j + 0 k dot 0 i + 4j + 2k = 3*0-4*1 +0*2 = -4
    a dot y = 0 i + 4j + 2k dot 8 i -7j + 0k = 0*8 -4*7 +2*0 = - 28
    so -32

  2. a=<0,4,2> , b=<-3,4,4> , c=<3,-1,0> and y=<8,-7,0>

    I will do b)
    you do the rest and let me know what you got

    b) (a ⋅b )a
    = (0 + 16 + 8)<0,4,2> , which is a scalar times a vector
    = 24<0,4,2>
    = <0,96,48>
