Homework Help: Dividing vectors in dot products

  1. Oct 8, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    can you divide 2 vectors which are in fractions?

    2. Relevant equations
    example a . a / b . a (dot products)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    would it become a / b?

    a and b are vectors?
    If so then a dot a and a dot b are not vectors, just numbers.
    Example: a = (1,2) b = (3,4)
    Then a dot b = 1*3 + 2*4 = 11
