Cross product question.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I simply forget how to cross product if you have:

    3(A x B)

    Would it be 3A x B


    A x B then take that result and multiply by 3?

    r(axb) = (ra)xb = ax(rb)

    I believe it works like that for r=constant.

    Thank you that was my original thought.
