Ok, this one has really got me...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose thatu[tex]\centerdot[/tex] (vXw) = 2.

Find

(a) (uXv) [tex]\centerdot[/tex]w

(b)u[tex]\centerdot[/tex](wXv)

(c)v[tex]\centerdot[/tex](uXw)

(d) (uXv)[tex]\centerdot[/tex]v

Once I understand the what to do with the information given, I am sure the rest of the problems will fall into place, but can anyone help me to get started with this? Thanks

Oh, and just for clarification, the little dots that are out of place there are suppossed to represent the dot product. I used the \centerdot command with LaTeX but for some reason it is not where it should be. I am still pretty new at it. If I figure it out, I will edit the post again. So, for example, (a) is (u cross v) dot w.
