Three vectors are given:
A=2i+3j, B=1i+5j, C=-1i+3j
Find constants x and y such that xA+yB=C
The Attempt at a Solution
The form of the final equation reminded me if standard form of a slope, so I found the total vector for A,B, and C. I was then going to put it in the form Ax+By=C, but then I realized I’d be solving for slope, and I don’t think that’s the direction I want to go.
