1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Calculate the cross product assuming that u X w = <7,1,8> Find (3u + 4w) X w = ? 2. Relevant equations I'm not sure. I know you have to relate the cross product to something inorder to find what u and w are, but don't know what equations to use. 3. The attempt at a solution Don't know where to start

I think it is best if you use these 3 characteristics.
1. u x w = u w sin(theta) 2. λu x w = λ (u x w) 3. (u + v) x w= u x w + v x w
