    They were asking for the geometric interpretation and the says its triangular prism with infinite right angles. I don't understand what they mean by that.




    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Re: Vectors

    It doesn't say "with infinite right angles". It says "an infinite (right angles) triangular prism". It is one side of it that has infinite length.
