    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The problem and its solution are attached as 1-6.jpg

    2. Relevant equations
    Cross product.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    If I'm correct with what I am about to say then, I get this problem but, I want to make sure that I truly get it and am not thinking some incorrect thing and believing it to be true. Basically, can someone please tell me if the point P on the diagram should be point A and whether the 0 or M_O point should be point P?

    If what I said is confusing, tell me and I will rephrase it.
    Thanks in advance!
