For the following three vectors, what is 3C·(2A x B )?

A = 2.00i + 3.00j - 9.00k
B = -3.00i + 3.00j + 2.00k
C = 5.00i - 8.00j


2AxB=(12+54)+(8-54)+(12-18)

2AxB=66i - 46j -6k

3C·(2AxB)= (66x15)i + (-46x-24)j = 2094

the app is telling me it's incorrect. I don't know what I'm doing wrong! thx in adv
