If I take the Dot Product of two vectors, say A and B, I get: AxBx + AyBy + AzBz(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And then when I add those terms, I get the magnitude, right?

So when one of those terms are negative, that means I could end up with a negative magnitude?

I thought magnitude had to be positive.
